Medical City Healthcare - January 13, 2021

For some North Texas families, ringing in the new year also meant joyously welcoming a new baby into their homes and their hearts. Although 2021 may have looked different than past New Year’s celebrations, one thing remains the same: Now as always, moms and babies are cherished and protected at Medical City Healthcare hospitals.

If you’re pregnant or thinking about adding a new member to your family, we invite you to see what other moms have to say about delivering their babies during the pandemic:

Baby Grayson at Medical City Plano

Congratulations to Clare and Nico Barnard, who welcomed baby Grayson at Medical City Plano on January 5!

The Bernards have a special legacy with us. Clare was one of four grandchildren to be born at Medical City Plano and Clare’s grandmother, Anna Martin, has worked in our hospital for the last 25 years! Just one of the many reason Clare and Nico made the drive from Little Elm to deliver with us and we are so thankful!

Willow at Medical City Weatherford

A new year has brought a new face into the world! The Labor and Delivery Team at Medical City Weatherford was honored to welcome the hospital’s first baby of 2021 on January 3—baby Willow!

Despite the pandemic, Willow’s mom Adrian said that her delivery experience was a positive one. She offered this advice for pregnant women who are unsure about what to expect during their labor and delivery.

“If you’re afraid of going in there, if you’re going alone or if your birth partner isn’t really prepared, know that the staff and nurses will be there as a really good support system for you,” Adrian says.
