At least 49 babies were born in North West on New Year’s Day, the provincial department of health said. Department spokesperson Tebogo Lekgwethwane said 49 babies were born, of which 23 were boys and 26 girls.

The first arrival at Job Shimankana Tabane Hospital in Rustenburg was a baby boy Leago Seipei. He was born at 1:40am.

Second-time mother Tebogo Seipei said she had hoped her baby would be a girl as she already has a boy.

Staff at the hospital said they had a quiet New Year’s day compared to 2018. The team had delivered four babies by noon. Nurses said they had double the number of births at that time last year. All the babies were born without complications.

North West Health MEC Madoda Sambatha visited Klerksdorp Hospital to welcome New Year’s babies. Four babies were born at the Klerksdorp Hospital, a boy and three girls.
