Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC) is pleased to share that our first baby of 2018 was born on Monday, January 1.

Proud parents Sabina Perez and Chris Curwin of Port Hope welcomed their first child, Ivory Kathaleen Curwin, into the world at 10:46 a.m. on New Year’s Day. Ivory weighed in at 8 lbs. 4 oz. and measured 21 inches long.

The couple arrived at PRHC at about 4:30 a.m. Monday morning, and Ivory came along just a few hours later, delivered with the support of a midwife. The family of three is now settling in together at home.
