First Sacramento baby born in 2016




The first baby of 2016 in the Sacramento region is a girl.

Ashlynn White was born exactly at midnight on January 1, 2016 at Kaiser Permanente in Roseville. She was 5 pounds and 2 ounces and 18 inches. 

She was scheduled to be born through C-section next Wednesday but her mom had high blood pressure and doctors decided it was best to deliver her as soon as possible.

“When I went for my monitoring yesterday, after my monitoring, they said: ‘Ok. Time to go to labor and delivery,” Amber White, Ashlynn's mom said. 

Amber didn't expect all the attention but think it will make for a good story when Ashlynn grows up.

“I think it’s going to be fun for her later.” Amber said. “Not something you plan for but it happened. It’s really cool,”

Ashlynn is now recovering in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and doctors expect she will go home with her mom in the next few days.

“She is in the intensive care unit,” Dr. Jeanne Conry, Asst Physician in Chief, “We’ve got her very well monitored and she’s doing great.”

It's the second time in a row Kaiser Permanente in Roseville delivers the first baby of the year in the Sacramento Region.

“Getting to deliver the first baby is just fun,” Dr. Conry said. “It’s exciting everybody enjoys it.”

Ashlynn is the third of three girls in her family. Her 5-year-old sister Audrina White was asleep when she was born but says she can't wait to meet her and play with dolls with her one day.

 “I just saw pictures on my mama’s phone,” Audrina said. “She looks cute,”
