A treat for Tobago, as two girls and a boy were delivered at the new Scarborough General Hospital, to bring in the New Year.
The first mother to deliver was 31-year-old Jennesea George, of Patience Hill, Tobago, around 4.52 a.m .
Her bouncing baby girl, Jaliyah Winchester, weighed in at 4.01 kilogrammes.
Jaliyah means prosperity, courtesy and honesty.
The second mother to give birth yesterday was Felicia Mohammed, of Goodwood. Around 9 a.m., her baby boy Jamal Kwasi Primus was ushered into the New Year, weighing 3.72 kilogrammes, her first child.
She told the Express he would be her last, as the pain was too much to bear. While 31-year-old Nikisha Clarke, of Sobers Trace, Patience Hill, gave birth to her baby girl around 4.23 p.m., weighing 2.91 kilogrammes. Her companion Trevis Armstrong was all smiles and excited to speak with the Express.
"It feels exciting, when I heard the news that my wife delivered I jumped up and down the hallway of the hospital. It feels great," Armstrong said.
The mothers were all visited by Tobago House of Assembly health secretary Claudia Groome-Duke, CEO of the Tobago Regional Health Authority Paula Chester-Cumberbatch and chairman of the board of the TRHA Jennifer Sampson- Brown.
All mothers were given hampers from the TRHA, while George was given a hamper from representatives of First Citizens.
