NMC Welcomes First Baby of the New Year

Northwestern Medical Center is pleased to announce the birth of our first baby of 2021. On Friday, January 1, Amelia Eileen Oquendo became the first baby born at NMC in the new year!

Parents Meghann and Mike Oquendo, of Cambridge, were happy to meet their new bundle of joy – but somewhat surprised as she was born five weeks early! She was born at 5:44 a.m., a healthy 5 pounds, 12 ounces, measuring 18 3/4 inches long.

As the first baby born at NMC in 2021, Amelia was presented a hand-made wooden rocking horse, crafted by Natural Hardwoods of Highgate Center and a colorful quilt gifted by the Franklin County Quilters Guild. The NMC family would like to wish Amelia and her family a happy and healthy New Year!
