The Gizo Hospital Labour Ward saw the arrival of two babies on the New Year’s Day, Sunday 1 January, 2023.
This was revealed by a nursing officer early this week.
The nurse could not indicate whether these two babies – one boy and one girl- were delivered via Cesarean section, vacuum process or just normal births.
On Christmas Day, 25 December 2022, Gizo Hospital recorded only one birth and the baby is a male.
On Boxing Day, Monday 26 December 2022, three babies were born: A male twin and one female.
The nurse described the babies on these festive days as the best Christmas and New Year’s gift to their parents and siblings.
It is understood that there were other births around the province on the Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
However, Solomon Star could not get the records of these new born babies.
