The birthing suite team at Trillium Health Partners – The Mississauga Hospital delivered its first 2021 New Year’s baby.
A baby boy named Jacob arrived at 12:19 a.m. on New Year’s Day, weighing 9.54lbs.
Nota Flokiotis and her husband, Moneer Sahar, were all smiles as they embraced baby Jacob.
“We are feeling excited and blessed.” Flokiotis said. “We weren’t expecting to have the first baby of the New Year. We didn’t even know the gender, so it has been one wonderful surprise after another. We are grateful and excited to start a new chapter.”
Baby Jacob and mom are healthy and well.
“I’m hoping that the New Year and the vaccine bring an end to the pandemic, so we can move back to our normal life and maybe the blessing of this little boy can change things for the better for everybody in this world,” added Sahar.
