Haida Gwaii’s first baby of 2010

  • Jan. 22, 2010 9:00 a.m.

Haida Gwaii’s first baby of the year is Jayde Vivian Bea Davidson, born at the Queen Charlotte hospital January 15, at 3:30 in the morning. She’s the daughter of Tawni and Ben Davidson of Queen Charlotte, and firstborn for the couple. “We’re doing pretty good,” Ms Davidson told the Observer Friday, “we’re starting to catch up on sleep.” Jayde weighed in at 9 lbs. 6 ozs., and was 20.5 inches in length at birth. She apparently wanted to be first baby of the year, as she wasn’t due for another ten days. Her birth was the first legal midwife birth on islands. Congratulations, Tawni, Ben and Jayde!
