Echuca’s mini baby boom has continued with another six births at Echuca hospital between last Tuesday and Saturday.
A baby was born last Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, while two were born on both Friday and Saturday.
The babies join the eight born between November 23 and 26, bringing the number of babies born at the hospital to 14 in only nine days.
This is the same number of babies born in the whole of November last year.
While there has been a big run of births in a short period recently, with 29 born throughout November this year — which is about normal according to hospital records — with the exception of last year, which saw an unusually low number for November.
It compares to 31 babies born at Echuca hospital in November 2010.
The run of recent births has, however, increased the number of babies born at Echuca hospital by 18 in the past five months compared to the same time last year.
Hospital records show 139 babies were born between July 1 and December 3 this year, compared to 121 in the same period last year.
