A Bounty of Babies Born Leap Day

Mohegan Lake's Jessica Romero and Walter Hernandez and their new baby boy

Something about Leap Day brought Westchester babies out – literally – in numbers. White Plains Hospital and Hudson Valley Hospital Center in Cortlandt Manor each welcomed five babies to the world on Wednesday. That’s a record-setting number for Feb. 29 at HVHC and also unusually high for White Plains, where a set of twins was among the newcomers.

White Plains threw a birthday party for the kids – particularly nice since they won’t have another “real” one for four years.

Funny, I had the idea all the babies were being born on 1st March when I was in the hospital doing my birth doula duties. One after the other was pushing their baby out, so I thought most moms had kept them in till after the leap day.
Anyway, my explanation was the weather depression! Depressions cause babies to be born and so does the full moon (which it wasn’t).
