For many, Easter is a time for bringing family together, while for some in Port Lincoln it was about welcoming new family members.
The Port Lincoln Hospital delivered nine babies in the lead up to Easter Friday and delivered a total of four babies on April 11 alone.
Port Lincoln Health Services nurse management facilitator Christine Weber said there was definitely an influx of babies around the Easter period.
“Not quite a baby boom but we had a pre-Easter extravaganza of babies,” Ms Weber said.
She said the busy baby period was set to continue with 33 women due to deliver by the end of May.
“April and May will remain busy months for our midwifery unit,” Ms Weber said.
First time parents Lucy Patton and Luke Pryor from Elliston welcomed son Arlo Gray Pryor after Easter on April 18 at 8.20am.
Ms Patton and Mr Pryor said they were excited about having their son born around Easter with Ms Patton’s mum Deborah Leith joining them all the way from England.
