For some, this Hari Raya Aidilfitri was extra special as they celebrated with their offspring for the first time.
Perak Community Specialist Hospital (PCSH) welcomed four Raya babies on the first day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri; three baby girls and one baby boy.
“My wife was admitted to the hospital at 8am on the eve of Hari Raya Aidilfitri but my baby girl only arrived at 12.15am on the first day of Raya weighing 2.5kg, and my family could not be happier with her arrival,” said Liew Yet Chi . “She is our first baby and we are truly thankful for this blessing,” said his wife Low Yi Yi .
On the same day, another ‘Raya mum’, Chow Choh Han delivered a baby girl naturally at 1.21am weighing 3.18kg. “Thankfully we had prepared everything so there wasn’t any panic. None of my family members were born on a special and meaningful day like Hari Raya,” said the father, Lee Chee Hoe.
Meanwhile, Pantai Hospital Ipoh welcomed two newborn babies on June 16. Twenty-four-year-old couple, Nurul Atiqah binti Ismil and Muhamad Izzani Izzuddin bin Marzuki had a baby boy weighing 3.6kg at 11.43am. Another pair, 32-year-old Mar Syaidatul Izma binti Abd Rahman and 44-year-old Megat Ayop bin Megat Arifin had a baby girl weighing 3.2kg at 1.30pm.
