baby newyearMURRAY, KY (1/2/14) – LaShawnte Nez and Lester Yazzie started off 2014 as the proud new parents of their 6 pound, 8 ounce, Alexia Brinley Yazzie, who was 19 inches long. The expected due date wasn’t until January 23, however, baby Alexia arrived a few weeks early. After having false labor the day before, LaShawnte woke up on New Year’s Day 2 a.m. with contractions but wasn’t sure if she was experiencing false labor again. As the contractions continued to get regular and stronger, they decided to head to the hospital at approximately 4 a.m.

When she arrived she was dilated at 3 cm and fully effaced. She knew it was going to be a long day so she sent her boyfriend, Lester, home to get the camera and her bag. He returned to the hospital at approximately 8:30 a.m., and was a little surprised to see LaShawnte in such pain. When the anesthesiologist arrived to give her an epidural, her labor had progressed so fast that she was ready to deliver. Lester was glad he had made the decision to head back to the hospital because at 9:05 am, they welcomed baby Alexia at Murray-Calloway County Hospital with Dr. Corey Forrester, OB/GYN delivering.

“I wasn’t intending to have a New Year’s baby and I really thought my labor would last all day,” she said.

LaShawnte and Lester Yazzie are Native American and full blooded Navajo Indians. They relocated to the area from New Mexico in 2009 and believe that baby Alexia is the first Navajo baby to be born in this area. Although unexpected, it was a perfect way to spend their New Year’s Day.
