Our maternity team were thrilled to welcome the first baby born in the New Year at Epworth Geelong with Huxley George Partington making a timely arrival at 12.09am on January 1.

Not only was Huxley the first baby born for 2018, he was also the 100th baby born at Epworth Geelong.

By missing the previous year by just minutes, Huxley get to share his birthday with his grandmother Angela Partington who celebrates her 72nd birthday today.

Congratulations to mum Caroline, dad Jon and baby brother Arthur on the arrival of this little milestone maker!
