It’s a girl! The first baby of the New Year arrived at Sturdy Memorial Hospital on Sunday, January 2, 2022 at 5:14am. Justine (26) and Wesley (27) MacKinnon of Rehoboth, Massachusetts welcomed their first child – Emma. She weighed in at 5 pounds, 13 ounces and 19 inches long. They were shocked but very excited to learn that they were the parents of the first baby born at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in 2022. Both baby and parents are doing well.
