• First Boston baby of 2018 born at Brigham & Women's Hospital


    BOSTON - Boston’s first baby of 2018 was welcomed into the world about an hour after we rang in the new year.

    The baby girl was born about 1:14 a.m. and weighed 6 pounds 6 ounces.

    Both mom and baby are resting comfortably, and at the request of the family photos were not provided.

    The Public Affairs offices at Massachusetts General Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess, Boston Medical Center, Tufts Medical Center and St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center stay in touch as the city rings in the New Year to determine which Boston hospital earns the honor of welcoming the first baby in 2018.
