Paradise hospital’s heaviest baby

Paradise Private Hospital in Port Moresby recorded its heaviest Christmas baby at 4.40pm yesterday, weighing at 4.5kg.

The baby girl was born to mother Judy Pala, who underwent a cesarean section. She is her third child.

The baby is one of the five Christmas babies recorded for the hospital.

Their first Christmas baby, a girl, was delivered at 8am, weighing 3.7kg.

The four were delivered after lunch.

Boxing Day today however, has been quiet so far.

But the staff at the Labour ward say the day is still young.

A few may come in before midnight.

Compared to last Christmas, they said this one has been less hectic.
