GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Several babies at Corewell Health West received a special birthday present as the hospital welcomed some of the first babies born in 2023.
Paige and Jacob Bouman went to Corewell Health Butterworth Hospital, officially Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital, around 1 a.m. Sunday and welcomed their third child, Maisey Jo Bouman, at 9:04 a.m. Maisey was born at 8 pounds, 9 ounces and 20.5 inches long.
“It feels special. Maisey is such a blessing,” said Jacob Bouman.
Paige Bouman wasn’t due until Jan. 5, so she didn’t expect her daughter to have this special birthday.
“It is special to have a child in the New Year. It’s always a fun birthday to have,” she said.
“I’m so happy the way it turned out and God’s plan for us and we’re so happy,” added Jacob Bouman. “Paige did wonders. But also the staff here, all the nurses and doctors are so wonderful.”
The couple hope to go home on Monday night so Maisey’s older brother and sister can meet her.
Another baby, Maeve Grace VanDyken, was also born Sunday morning. She was four days past her due date and weighed 8 pounds 3 ounces.
