Boone Baby Boom!

There’s a baby boom at Boone Hospital Center.

Kyler John Hafemeister was born at 10:34 p.m. last night. He was the 211th baby born at the Boone Family Birthplace in June, setting a new record for most births ever in one month at the hospital.

Previous records at the Boone Family Birthplace were 210 babies in August, 2002, and 209 babies in July, 2003.

“June, July and August are typically the busiest months for delivering babies. But even then, it is very uncommon to have a month with more than 200 deliveries,” said Marlee Walz, Director of Patient Care Services. “I don’t have an explanation for it. It was a great team effort by the Boone Family Birthplace staff and we’re so proud of their service during this busiest month ever.”

Kyler is the first child born to Alesha and Eric Hafemeister of Salisbury, Mo. While her due date was July 15, Alesha said she always felt she would give birth on June 30.

“I really did want him to be born on the 30th,” she said. “We don’t have any June babies in our family.”

Of the care she received during her delivery, Alesha said: “It was great. I couldn’t ask for anything better. They were right there whenever we needed anything.”

During the record-breaking month, 53 percent of the babies were female and some of the more popular names were: Corbin/Korbyn, Kaiden/Kayden, Addison, Emma and Harper.
