The baby was delivered at around 00:30 am and he weighed 3.1 kilograms. Aaron who was very joyful, told Stabroek News that she is very happy and thankful.

“It was my first experience, yes it was kind of challenging but all praise to God I came out safe,” said Aaron. She continued that she is very thankful to her family, especially her mother, aunt and most of all God. “Also special thanks to the Balwant Singh Hospital for all the attention and care,” Aaron said.

He weighed 4.1 kilos and is Piggot’s third child. “I am very happy because this wasn’t (expected) so early at all, and on Christmas Day too, I couldn’t ask for a better gift,” the woman said.

She praised God since all went well and both she and her new born baby are doing fine. Piggot has two daughters, and the boy came 17 years after her last child.
