Introducing Colton Tam, the first baby born in 2023 at Oak Valley Health’s Markham Stouffville Hospital! Parents Bonnie Ma and Ronnie Tam are elated to welcome their first child, born in the early hours on January 1. Baby Colton weighed in at 6 pounds, 4 ounces.

 “Our initial due date was January 6,” says Bonnie. “It never crossed our minds that we could have the first baby of the year until I was scheduled to be induced on January 1.”

Bonnie didn’t make it to her induction appointment, as her water broke on December 31, and she welcomed Colton at 4:52 a.m. on New Year’s Day. Mom and dad are settling into being first-time parents and are excited to watch Colton grow and experience all of his milestones as a family.

Ronnie and Bonnie were so happy with the care they received at Markham Stouffville Hospital.

“Thank you to the team for such a smooth delivery and for having all of the measures in place to ensure the safety of Colton and I throughout our time at the hospital,” says Bonnie.

Congratulations to Bonnie and Ronnie!
