Every baby is special, but there can only be one first baby of the New Year born at Day Kimball Hospital’s Burdick Family Birthing Center. After a four-day wait, that honor belongs to Aila de la Mora Gauvin who was born at 6:12 p.m. on January 4 to Joann and Brian Gauvin of Danielson, Connecticut. Aila is the couple’s 9th child.
The healthy baby girl weighed in at seven pounds seven ounces and measured 18.5 inches long. Aila and mom are doing great! Aila’s birth makes her the first baby born at the hospital and in Northeastern Connecticut in 2023. Northeast Connecticut’s “Baby New Year” was gifted with a card from Day Kimball Hospital administration, and a basket of baby essentials by the Woman's Board of Day Kimball Hospital.
