Happy New Year baby 2015

Vanderhoof's new year baby Ailee came on Jan. 2 making her mother 'oh so proud'.

Ailee Vivian Betty Hilman was born  to Asheena and Hyyt Hilman on Jan. 2 making her Vanderhoof’s first baby of 2015.

“I was so very happy. I cried,” Asheena Hilman said, proud mother of her second child.

Ailee was delivered by Dr. Makin and Dr. DeVos at St John Hospital at 8:21am at 21 inches weighing nine pounds seven ounces. Mother Asheena lives in Prince George but has kept her family doctor, Dr. Mike Makin, her whole life.

“He’s an awesome family doctor and very well informed,” Asheena said. “Anyone who knows him knows he’s a good doctor.” The birth of Ailee was a scheduled cesarean. Dec. 31 or Jan. 2 were the date choices. Asheena went with early in the year since her birthday is in October. Complications with Asheena’s first pregnancy resulted in an un-scheduled cesarean. She was in  labour for eight hours dilated only one centimetre and the doctor didn’t want the baby to go into distress.

“The first one wasn’t planned, I had to have it,” she said. “This time I didn’t’ want to chance it so I choose to have the cesarean. I was exhausted the first time even being in that little bit of labour. This time was very easy,” Asheena said.

Ailee’s parents brought her home four days later to meet her two-and-a-half-year-old sister Mhuiri, which is normal for a cesarean birth. Both Ailee and Mhuiri are irish names since both their parents are from irish decent.
