Soh ex­cit­ing

Canning Times - - FRONT PAGE -

KATHER­INE Soh and Nor­man Ng were ex­cited to wel­come their third child Leya but had no idea how spe­cial she would be.

Born on July 19, Leya was the 10,000th baby born at Fiona Stan­ley Hos­pi­tal since it opened in Oc­to­ber 2014.

Ms Soh said she was both sur­prised and amazed to have the mile­stone baby.

“This is our first child born in Aus­tralia, as our older two were born in Sin­ga­pore, so it’s so spe­cial to me,” she said.

“Es­pe­cially be­cause she is the 10,000th baby born here. I still can­not be­lieve it.

“Leya was 2.75kg, so she was quite small and she was born the day be­fore her due date.”

Fiona Stan­ley Fre­man­tle Hos­pi­tals Group ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Janet Za­gari said it was an ex­cit­ing mile­stone for the mid­wives and staff at the hos­pi­tal.

“It shows how busy our staff have been since open­ing, help­ing to de­liver al­most 230 ba­bies a month,” she said.

“It truly is a priv­i­lege to be part of so many births in Western Aus­tralia.”
