Bendigo baby boom makes for a busy month

Bendigo Weekly | Bendigo Weekly | 21-Sep-2017


BABIES tend to be born when they are good and ready, and a record number of 147 babies sought to greet the new world at Bendigo Hospital in August.

On three separate days last month, nine newborns entered the world.

August 11, 25 and 28 are likely to be big birthday dates forever more in Bendigo.

Not even twins or triplets account for the number of births last month.

There was only one set of twins.

Keeping maternity staff even busier was the number of first time mums among the total – more than a third of women had their first babies.
