Woman’s welcomes first baby of 2023

Less than 20 minutes into the new year, Autumn Sanford entered the world, becoming the first baby born at Woman’s Hospital in 2023.

Latrinda Sanford welcomed her baby girl into the world at 12:16 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2023, according to a news release.

Sanford did not expect to give birth two weeks before her Jan. 15 due date, nor did she expect to deliver the first baby of 2023. Sanford’s early delivery allowed her to welcome Autumn only minutes after the clock struck midnight. Autumn was born at 12:16 a.m., weighing in at 7 lbs. 15 ozs. and measuring 20 inches long. Mom and baby are both doing well.

Woman’s Hospital gifted the family a basket with books, supplies and a “First New Year Baby” onesie in celebration. With 8,000 babies born a year at Woman’s, Autumn is the first of many special lives to be welcomed at the hospital in 2023.
