Aw, come on.... it's so *cool* to be the first baby of the new year! Perhaps they'll get a prize! A free year's supply of Pampers?? Maybe free formula?

Well, i am so glad that her precious baby is "perfect" despite her stupid irresponsible behaviour.
What a moron.

Maybe possibly she NEEDED a c-section for medical reasons, and the story just didn't read like it.

Yes, I'm hoping she needed a scheduled c for some unmentioned reason. With THAT in mind, it wouldn't be so awful....


But just having a c birth for jollies? gag.

I am floored, disgusted and shocked. Well, some people will go to any length for their 15 minutes of fame.
I knew a woman who was induced 4 weeks early because "I'm uncomfortable, and ready to get this guy out of me"
Nice, really nice.

Mamato Ruby Violet joy.gif(6 with autism) and someone 1sttri.gif who should make him/herself known sometime in the next month.

I would love to see them (whoever THEY are that give a damn about this stuff) refuse to acknowledge cheaters like this. If I had a years supply of Pampers to award someone, or whatever... I wouldn't give it to these people. I would write the offer in such a way as to not exclude a C-birth that honesty just fell at that time but eliminate plotters like this in favor of spontaneous birth.

I know that when they do the whole first baby of the year thing here you are not counted if you have a scheduled c-section.

Even if she had a reason to have a c-sec I don't understand why they wouldn't have waited closer to her due date.

Some people really lose perspective on crap like this. I know someone who induced because she wanted her new baby in the family christmas photo.

What is even sicker than pregnant women wanting things is Drs. that suggest and or agree to do them.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Well that is even worse than being induced just before midnight on Dec 31st for tax purposes.

What's the point of having the first baby of the year if ANYONE could just go and do it this way? I sure hope the mom who was trying for the first baby and ended up second is pissed.

I also hope someone gave birth at home even before the first c-sec baby and that it gets in the paper.

poor people, imagine how much they miss out on every day... its really sad

why does this article state that "most likely" the other birth was c-section? anyone happen to know if that birth was cs or v? YES, agreed here that the ignorant media could do itself & the rest of us great good by NOT spending time researching & writing about CRAP stories like this one.

"oh, more useless info, how cool." me - when i catch titles like that article's

It is also especially unsafe because it encourages doctors to work faster than usual and to compete with each other. The woman and child are the ones who pay when speed is the most important factor. I read in Birth as an American Rite of Passage that a certain doctor is very respected because he can perform a cesarean in 12 minutes, even though he has a horrendous complication rate.

Yeah, but how do you weed out the inductions, augmentations and planned cesareans nowdays? Geez, in the hospital, that makes up the majority of births.

On a positive note, my morning paper had a story this AM about the first baby born this year in Hawai'i. Born at 1:35am and she had been in labor since Monday. So Hurrah for a letting it happen naturally rather than turning it into a scalpel race and Hurrah for the staff at Queens Medical Center for not timing her out at 24 hours!

how is this kid even the "first" baby of the year?!?!

what is that supposed to mean?

In the pacific time zone? in Oregon?

I think somebody closer to the Date Line gets to claim the title of 'first baby of 2004'.

And who cares? Like, I see the reason to care for first baby of the millinium (& give him/her paper diapers and fake milk), but not first of 2004!

and FRANKLY, the mom & OB shouldda gone for LAST baby of 2003. (Or maybe they were trying for that but the doc got waylayed during the incision.)

Horrible horrible horrible! The local paper had a story about the first baby of the year in our area, also born by c-section. WTF, is that the only way babies are born these days?

Is that stuff about the diapers and formula even true? Another friend told me that if you have the first baby of the year, your entire hospital bill is free. Like they would really do that.

Besides, it's easy to get free formula - just tell American Baby Magazine and Motherhood Maternity that you're exclusively breastfeeding on demand and they will send you a case!

In my town, you do get a bunch of prizes... diapers etc I suppose. I don't get the paper (our paper isn't worth paying for) so I don't know who won or anything.

If I won, it would probably be paper diapers, fake milk and a bunch of baby appliances to keep my child occupied so I wouldn't have to hold them!

Okay: http://www.tmnews.com/main.asp?Searc...SectionID=&S=1 in my town the first birth will be awarded something like a case of diapers.

A few years ago it was a big deal... must have been the 2000 baby.

BTW... believe it or not, this poor mom had a c/s too.

If it restores anyone's faith in humanity, the L&D floor where I work had our city's New Year's baby born a few seconds after midnight and NOT a c/sec. Just happend to slide out a few seconds after midnight (and by all reports, baby did just that - slid out in 2 pushes).
