BATON ROUGE - An estimated 395,000 babies will be born around the world on New Year’s Day, and Baton Rouge General has announced that its first baby of the year made her debut at 4:28 a.m., New Year's Day.
The little bundle of joy's mother, Alexis Veal, was thrilled to welcome her brand new baby girl, Nylia Desha Veal.

Baton Rouge General has delivered babies at its Bluebonnet campus since it opened 25 years ago.
In 2018, the Birth Center received the prestigious baby-friendly designation from UNICEF and the World Health Organization for its commitment to helping new moms breastfeed successfully.
In 2019, it was the first in South Louisiana to offer a new treatment for postpartum depression, and also created a Music Therapy program for its tiniest patients in the NICU.
