RiverBend Welcomes New Year’s Baby

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Leanna–that’s the name of the first baby born at Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend hospital this new year.

Leanna’s mom, Rita, gave birth to little Leanna at 1:57 a.m. Tuesday. She weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces.

Rita’s due date was actually Dec. 31. The family says they were so focused on the labor, they didn’t realize the clock had struck midnight and then they realized they had a New Year’s baby.

“I wanted both of them to be healthy and stable. All in all good and she is gorgeous just happy to see here, we love her,” said Juan Guzman and Rita Beltran, Leanna’s parents.

Mom says she knows her 5-year-old big brother will take very good care of her.
