KEMH welcomes first babies of 2023

Friday 6 January 2023: Two babies were born on Wednesday 4 January 2023. They were the first for the year. Craig and Monika Rowat welcomed their second daughter, Clara Elizabeth Rowat, at 10:05pm. She weighed 6lbs 15oz and was the second baby born that day. The mother of the first baby wanted no publicity.

“Clara was actually due on New Year’s Day,” said her father, Dr Rowat, a Canadian chiropractor on the island. “We were a bit disappointed when she didn’t come that day, but that’s ok, we were happy to greet her on Wednesday night.”

Clara has a 3-year-old sister, Ella, who was born on 9 January 2020 at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital. “She came to us just before the pandemic,” said her mother Monika, a native of the Czech Republic who works in Bermuda as the tennis and tourism specialist at Coral Beach and Tennis Club.

“We are very happy with the care we received from all the Maternity staff with both our daughters,” said Dr Rowat. “They were caring, attentive and excellent. We have nothing but praise for them.”
