She was followed shortly after by Christina Montejo, 16 years old from Belize City, who brought her 6 lb pink bundle into to the world at 10:00 a.m. Finally, Judith Middleton, 22 years old from Belize City, gave birth at 9:39 p.m. to her 7lb 10oz daughter.
“The birth of these babies reflects the positivity of life… and hope for the New Year,” said KHMH CEO Dr. Francis Longsworth, at a short ceremony honoring the new mothers this morning.
