Thursday, January 5, 2023

Iredell Memorial Hospital welcomed its first baby of the New Year on January 3.

Mother Hannah Boles and father Christopher Boles arrived at Iredell Memorial early Tuesday morning. Just three hours later, the Taylorsville couple welcomed their daughter, Sarah Rebecca Boles, into the world at 8:36 a.m. Both Hannah and her beautiful baby girl are healthy and doing well.

Sarah was born 18 inches long, weighing eight pounds, five ounces.

This is the second child Hannah has delivered at Iredell Memorial Hospital. Both times she said she had great experiences, and if she ever had another child, she plans to come back to Iredell again.

“I had a great experience at Iredell. The doctors and nurses were all friendly and helpful,” said Hannah.

Prior to her delivery, Hannah attended child birth preparation courses through Iredell’s Pampered Pregnancy program.
