Health System Welcomes Glynn County’s First Baby of 2009

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Jan. 1, 2009 – More than 1,500 babies are born annually at Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick Campus. However, each Jan. 1 the cycle begins anew with the welcoming of the first birth of the New Year. This year that honor goes to Aubrigh Raylyn Vizcaino, who arrived in the Miriam & Hugh Nunnally Maternity Care Center on New Year’s Day at 1:23 a.m. The proud parents are Erica Vizcaino and Timothy Keach of Brunswick. She was delivered by Matthew Johnston, MD, and weighed in at 5 lbs., 6 oz., and measured 18 inches long. She is the couple’s second child—Aubrigh joins big sister Thalia, 3.

Both mom and dad say they were surprised that Aubrigh made her debut on New Year’s Day. “My due date was Jan. 17, but this is a great surprise,” Erica Vizcaino said. “Happy New Year!” Dad agrees. “She was a little early, but we are very excited to have her here,” he said.

The new mom, whose first child was also born at the Brunswick Campus, said Dr. Johnston helped alleviate any apprehension she had about Aubrigh coming early. “He was a really good doctor and explained everything, so I didn’t feel nervous,” she said.

The Health System presented the happy parents and baby with a large gift basket full of goodies and baby care necessities from the Brunswick Campus Gift Shop. Pictured from left are: big sister Thalia, dad Timothy, and little Aubrigh.
