What are the Odds? Friends Give Birth to Leap Year Babies within Hours of Each Other
Date:2/29/2008

PANAMA CITY, Fla., Feb. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- What are the odds? Today, at Gulf Coast Medical Center in Panama City, Florida, friends Ashley Mize and Wendy Baker gave birth to Leap Year babies. That news may not make headlines, but consider the following. Ashley and Wendy attend the same church in Port St. Joe, Florida and their husbands work together at the Port St. Joe Fire Department. There's more. Husbands Scott Baker and Michael Mize were together helping put out a hotel fire when they got the call their wives had gone into labor.

Hours after both wives had delivered both couples were enjoying their once-in-a-lifetime story with friends and family. "Our babies were scheduled to be born in a few weeks," said Ashley Mize. "Who would have ever thought this could happen? We'll never forget this day. We've already agreed to celebrate the baby's birthdays together."

Dads Scott and Michael said they felt bad leaving their fire team two men short, but their crew understood. "Our fire chief's wife and another firefighter's wife are scheduled to have babies in a few weeks, so everyone was very understanding," explained Michael Mize.

The babies, Joshua Baker, and Hallie Nicole Mize, and their moms are healthy and doing well. Joshua was born at 12:40 a.m. and Hallie was born at 8:22 a.m.

Director of the Gulf Coast Medical Center Women and Children's Center, Rose McKelvie, RN, said the news of the Leap Year babies swept through the hospital. "We're a 176-bed hospital and deliver more than 2,000 babies a year. We're a busy unit and hear lots of interesting stories about our patients, but this is one of the most unusual I've heard in all the years I've worked in healthcare. The families are all smiles."
