Each year more than 2,300 babies are born at Lowell General Hospital.
But only one can be first. For 2018, that honor went to Lucy Wren Carey-Zanchi of Dracut.
Parents Ashley Carey and her husband Brian Zanchi knew there was a chance they’d be the first, as her due date was January 1. Ashley went into labor that morning, but as the day went on the prospects of being No. 1 dimmed. After all, an average of more than six babies are born at The Birthplace at Lowell General each day.
When their baby arrived at 4:31 in the afternoon, they were told that their baby was indeed the first in Greater Lowell. Ashley says her new daughter will be the third in her extended family with a New Year’s birthday.
Congratulations to the Ashley and Brian, and thank you for choosing us for your care.
