At least two more “leap babies” expected before end of day

It’s been four years since we last delivered a baby on February 29 at Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC).

The Health Centre’s first leap year baby of 2016 was born at 9:01 a.m. today, and she was apparently in a big hurry to earn her first-place position: her mother had just six minutes of active labour once she arrived at the hospital.

Frances Clara Glover was delivered at PRHC this morning to proud parents Lindsay and James Glover, weighing in at 7 lbs. 14 oz.

The family left their home in Warkworth for PRHC around 7 a.m. this morning when Lindsay’s contractions started to come about five minutes apart.

Frances is her parents’ second daughter; her sister Della Mae turned two years old just twelve days ago.

At least two additional “leap day” births are expected at PRHC before the end of the day.
