Asher Jeremiah Chapman’s parents stayed up until midnight on December 31 to ring in 2022 with their family – not knowing that the celebrations would continue well into the next day! Asher was born at 3:43 pm on January 2 at Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH), weighing 9 pounds, 11 ounces. His parents, Kayla and Paul Chapman, say he was well worth the wait.
“I felt something at the party and things got worse during the night,” says Kayla. “We called the Birthing Unit and decided to head to the hospital around 4:00 in the morning. It was snowing so hard, and roads weren’t plowed, so we had to take our time.” The Chapmans live in Kemptville.
Kayla says the experience at WDMH has been great. “I’ve only heard great things about Winchester Hospital, and I didn’t want to go into Ottawa to have our baby. I have family and friends who have had their babies here too. Everyone has been great.”
Congratulations from everyone at WDMH!
