Baby Yara was the first baby born at CRDAMC in 2021. Yara arrived at 11:57 a.m. and weighed 7 pounds and 10 ounces.

While the world reveled in the arrival of 2021, one Fort Hood couple welcomed a new member to their family. Baby girl Yara garnered the title of Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center’s New Year’s baby.

Yara arrived at 11:57 a.m. and weighed 7 pounds and 10 ounces. She was the first of three New Year’s Day deliveries. First-time parents Rob and Charlotte were delighted about her New Year’s Day arrival.

Yara arrived a few days later than expected, just in time to celebrate the New Year.

Rob, assigned to 302nd Squadron, is ecstatic about the arrival of their first child. “It’s pretty cool; we’re really excited and happy,” Rob said.

The new parents are looking forward to spending time with Baby Yara and shared their gratitude with the labor and delivery staff.

“We were really impressed with the care here. The staff did an awesome job,” the new dad said. The new parents shared their gratitude with the L&D team a day after the delivery. “Everyone here was really helpful, especially helping us with things we don’t know because we’re new parents.”
