Rio Grande Regional Hospital welcomed its 2017 Christmas baby.
Aldo Josue came into the world at 8:05 a.m. on December 25, 2017. Aldo Josue, the son of Alejandro and San Juanita was the first delivery of babies whose mothers were in labor on Christmas Eve.
Dr. Lourdes Uribe delivered the healthy baby boy, who was 19 ½” inches and weighed 6 pounds, 13 ounces.
Baby Aldo was the first baby born Christmas morning at Rio Grande Regional Hospital. This was an extra special delivery for mom and dad as they were expecting their fourth baby boy to be born on New Year’s Day.
“Christmas in labor and delivery is a very special time,” said Cris Rivera, Chief Executive Officer at Rio Grande Regional Hospital. “We all know there is no greater present than a new bundle of joy.”
