Redwood Memorial Celebrates Baby Born in the New Year


Zainna Harmoush and Tristan Blackwell welcomed their son at 8:03 a.m. at Redwood Memorial Hospital today, New Year’s Day.Weott residents Zainna Harmoush and Tristan Blackwell rang in the new year today with a very special gift – the first baby born within St. Joseph Health – Humboldt County in 2012. The proud parents arrived at Redwood Memorial Hospital in Fortuna just a little over an hour before Zainna gave birth to their son, whose name still hasn’t been decided. The baby boy was born at 8:03 this morning and weighed just over 8 pounds.

Zainna and Tristan weren’t too surprised their son came 10 days early. Big sister Anora, 2 years old, was also born several days early. She already shares something unique in common with her younger brother, a special birthday. Anora was born on 9-9-09.

Per hospital tradition, the first baby born in the new year receives a gift basket with baby items like stuffed animals, fuzzy blankets, child-proof safety gear and more.
