Adena Welcomes First Baby of 2019


CHILLICOTHE (Jan. 1, 2019) – Adena Health System welcomes its first baby of the New Year. The infant, a girl, arrived on Jan. 1, 2019 at 4:52 a.m. Brynlee Shepherd is the daughter of David Shepherd and Tracy Schoolcraft of Waverly, OH. The newborn weighed-in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces and she is 20.25 inches long.

“We rang in 2019 watching the ball drop in the Adena’s Women’s & Children Center, and patiently awaiting Brynlee’s arrival,” said Schoolcraft. “We are excited for Brynlee to meet her one-year old big brother, who was also born here on Thanksgiving in 2017.”

Per tradition, the New Year’s Baby was presented with a basket of baby items, gift cards and toys, donated by the Adena Women’s Board.

Congratulations to the family.
