New parents Kyle and Heather Jarman rang in the new year with the birth of their baby girl at 11:43 am on January 1, 2016. Shelby Jarman, the first baby born in 2016 at Riverview Health, weighed seven pounds, three ounces and measured 20.5 inches long.
“We wouldn’t have gone anywhere else to have our baby because of the relationships we’ve established,” Kyle said. “Everyone is so caring and knows us by our first names.”
Kyle, a teacher, and Heather, a cardiac nurse, live in Noblesville and are excited to begin their new lives as a family of three.
