Sutter Delivers on New Year’s, Including West Coast’s First Baby of 2019

ROSEVILLE — The first baby born in 2019 on the West Coast was delivered just eight seconds after midnight at Sutter Roseville Medical Center. Alan Armenta was born at 8 pounds, 15 ounces to Patricia Romero and Juan Armenta of Elk Grove right at midnight. This is a rare achievement, as the odds are that only about a half-dozen babies would be born during the first minute of any day in the U.S.

Patricia Romero gave birth to Alan at just seconds past midnight on New Year’s Day at Sutter Roseville Medical Center. His proud sister is Allison.

Alan was the first of dozens of babies born on New Year’s Day at Sutter hospitals. Every year, Sutter Health’s birth specialists help deliver more than 40,000 babies across Northern California – and every year, a good handful of those babies arrive in the wee hours of Jan. 1, making them the first babies of the year in their communities.

Delivering little Alan was Sutter Medical Group’s Amy Riley, M.D., who was called just 20 minutes before midnight for the delivery, and baby Alan entered the world very quickly after that.

“You can’t predict it. Sometimes moms push one time, and sometimes moms push for two hours,” Dr. Riley said. “So Patricia pushed one time and out he came, just seconds after midnight.”

At that point, the staff cheered, put on New Year’s party hats and served sparkling cider to the new parents. In addition, the staff gave the family a gift basket – actually an infant bathtub full of goodies for the baby, including blankets, washcloths, bath soap, lotion and other baby care essentials.

While Dad was mostly happy that Mom and Alan were perfectly healthy, Patricia said she was excited to have a New Year’s baby.

“He got lucky,” Patricia said. “We all did.”
