Meet the first baby born at Frankston Hospital in 2023

It’s a boy! Born 19 minutes into the new year, Zakarya (Zak) Alexander was the first baby born at Frankston Hospital on 1 January 2023.

While parents Samar and Nick might have missed the New Years Eve fireworks, they certainly didn’t miss any of the excitment as they welcomed their third child into the world.

“My experience at Frankston Hospital was absolutely fantastic,” says Samar. “The care, attention and expertise provided through each of my births has been absolutely great.”

“It’s pretty exciting [to give birth to the first child of the year at Frankston Hospital], none of my previous children have had such claim to fame, hopefully this is a good luck omen for baby Zak.”

We wish Samar and Nick all the best as they enjoy the amazing young character their child will develop into over the years to come.

Congratulations to all the other parents who are also celebrating the birth of their newborn child within the first week of the New Year
