Essentia Health-Fargo Welcomes First Baby of 2019

New Year baby with family.

The Birthplace at Essentia Health-Fargo welcomed its first baby of the New Year. At 6:05 a.m. little baby Alora made her debut weighing in at eight pounds, four ounces and 20-and-a-half inches long. Alora’s parents are Katie Arrieta and Jerome Klein of Fargo and she joins a big sister, Myla, age 7.

A few days earlier than originally expected, Alora came into this world to help celebrate her mom’s birthday. Katie is a New Year’s baby as well so they’ll be able to celebrate together for years to come. Holiday birthdays run in the family as and Myla was born on the 4th of July!

Mom, dad, baby and big sister are looking forward to a wonderful 2019!
