NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital Welcomes New Year’s Baby
Story Number is : 011418130
NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital

Zachariah Ducombe was born to Liyana Baker at 5:49 a.m. on January 1, 2018. The baby boy was 8 pounds, 4 ounces and 21-inches-long. He was delivered by Dr. Nitasha Jain, a ColumbiaDoctors OB/GYN, who practices with NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group Westchester.

Ms. Baker, who is from New Rochelle, NY and is a Certified Nurse’s Assistant, has two other children. Baby Zachariah joins his one-year-old brother, Zephania and his three-year-old sister, Anna-K.

Little Zacharia wasn’t due until January 12th, but Ms. Baker said that she began having labor pains on New Year’s Eve. The next thing she knew she was in the hospital preparing to deliver her son. “He is such a sweet baby, cries very little and he eats a lot,” beams the new mom.

NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital’s Maternity Center offers 23 private, hotel-like post-partum rooms complete with bathrooms and showers, flat-screen televisions and free Internet. The rooms are designed for maximum comfort with relaxing colors, soft lighting, carpeted floors and special reclining chair/beds for partners. The Maternity Center also features a state-of-the-art nursery for newborns and a new Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery for babies with special needs or those who are born prematurely. NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital provides support for breastfeeding mothers with an on-site lactation specialist and follow-up support after discharge. The hospital delivers an average of 1,300 babies annually.
