Three ladies, two birthdays, one special day

Josephine, Nyla and Brandi
On September 10th, Dr. John Freeman delivered baby girl Nyla Martinez weighing 9 lbs and measuring 21 inches.

He chuckled to the nurses: “Want to hear something fun? I delivered Nyla’s mom Brandi here, too, 20 years ago to the day!”

Dr. Freeman said he’s been an OB/GYN for 25 years – delivering over 4,000 babies – and has never come across this situation.

“I’ve delivered babies to moms whom I’ve also delivered, but never on the same day before,” he said. “I thought that was kind of cool! It shows how long Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth has been in the community.”

Brandi, who was born weighing almost 9 lbs also, said Nyla sharing her birthday was an exciting and unexpected surprise. Nyla was actually due on September 8.

“We think it’s pretty exciting,” Brandi’s mom Josephine said. “It means double birthday cakes!”
