The University Medical Center at Princeton welcomed Mercer County’s first baby of 2012 when Manisha Mehta of Princeton gave birth to a healthy baby girl at 12 a.m. today.

Manisha and her husband, Yogi Mehta, were out at dinner celebrating New Year’s Eve when she went into labor a week ahead of her Jan. 7 due date. The baby girl, who has not yet been named, was delivered at midnight by Dr. Vrunda Patel.

Baby Girl Mehta weighed in at 6 pounds, 5 ounces, and measured 19.75 inches long. She is the couple’s first child.

To celebrate the New Year’s baby, Community Connection of Princeton HealthCare and the maternity department  presented the family with gifts, including a gift card to Babies R Us, a Lenox vase with a rose for baby, a floral arrangement, the baby’s first outfit and purse, a lamb-shaped mat, and a blanket knitted by patients in the eating disorders Unit at the hospital.

Community Connection, formerly the Auxiliary of University Medical Center at Princeton, works to advance the mission of Princeton HealthCare System through advocacy and fundraising.
