While the world was asleep on Christmas morning, seven mothers welcomed their newborns at the Tupua Tamasese Meaole Hospital in Moto’otua.

This was confirmed by Midwife, Tiara Tu’ulua. She said the day would forever be in the memories of the proud mothers who welcomed their babies on the day the world was celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.

Mrs. Tu’ulua said the first baby was born at 2:05 am on Christmas day. 

“The baby was a female and her mother was 28-year-old Merita Nicole from Faleula,” she said, adding the newborn baby was Merita’s first child. 

“Her weight was 2.58 kilogrammes, and she was delivered by midwives Siaulaiga Tupe and Mele Tuaniu.”

Mrs. Tu’ulua said of the seven babies, five were females and two males. 

“The whole team was working that night, and it wasn’t that busy. On Christmas Day we only delivered seven babies.”
