Each year more than 2,000 babies are born in Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre’s (RVH) Birthing Unit and while each one is a unique and beautiful miracle, it calls for a special occasion to welcome the first baby born in 2021.
At 8:49 a.m. on January 1, first-time parents Lilia DaSilva Gouvella and Ryan Furtado welcomed their baby boy Diego, weighing 6 lbs 8 oz., into the world.
Baby Diego and his mom are happy and healthy.
RVH provided the first baby born in 2021 with an RVH keepsake Teddy bear.
