Pepperell Family Welcomes Their First Baby on New Year’s Day


For new parents Bonnie and Stephen Reagan of Pepperell, the start of 2017 was extra special as they welcomed their first child at 10:37 a.m. on January 1.  Paige Elizabeth was born at Emerson Hospital on New Year’s Day weighing eight pounds, twelve ounces and measuring 19 ¾ inches long.

The couple chose to deliver their baby at Emerson based on the hospital’s reputation. Bonnie’s sister works as a nurse at Emerson and came to meet Paige shortly after she was born.  Paige was delivered by Dr. Christina Thomas of Concord OB/GYN Associates.

Paige was the first baby born at Emerson Hospital in 2017. Holiday birthdays tend to run in the family - her father’s birthday is on the Fourth of July.
