Oh baby! New year’s deliveries around the state
LOGAN — And the winner is . . . Piper England.
The 7-pound girl was the first baby born at an Intermountain hospital in Utah in 2022. Piper, the daughter of Bethany and Scott England, arrived at 1:03 a.m., on Jan. 1, at Intermountain Logan Regional Hospital.
“I wasn’t due until Jan. 20, but my water broke last night about 10 p.m. and we arrived at the hospital about 11 p.m. knowing I’d need a Caesarean section,” Bethany said. “We didn’t think she’d arrive quite this early.
“We have a lot of family birthdays in December, so my mom told me, no more December birthdays! Luckily Piper made it to January by just over an hour,” she added.
Despite arriving early, Piper is a healthy weight and measured in at 19 inches tall. Dr. Brynn Schumacher handled the delivery.
“Everyone at the hospital was super helpful and kind and everything went really smoothly,” said Scott England. “We had so many people here to help us and we were all laughing along the way. I couldn’t ask for a more perfect experience.”
