Julie Ramsey of Salisbury, Mo. was due to have a baby girl on March 6. Her doctor told her she would need a caesarean section, so she scheduled it for her 30th birthday. Julie continued the tradition her mom, Lorie Hayden of Platt City, Mo., started when she gave birth to Julie on her own 25th birthday.
“I knew it was going to be close,” said Ramsey on her birthday. “So I went ahead and scheduled it for today.”
Now grandma, mom and baby Annie all share a special bond and a birthday – March 1. They said they try to get together to share a birthday celebration if they can. One of Ramsey’s cousins and Hayden’s nieces also went into labor on March 1.
Hayden’s husband, Ramsey’s dad and Annie’s grandpa joked that sharing birthdays is genetic, he was born on his father’s birthday as well.
Ramsey is excited to welcome her second baby to the family and said, “Having the baby today distracted me from turning 30.”
What a great birthday present!
