Say hello to the newborns – at least 10 babies born to fire evacuees in BC

From CBC News:

Ten tiny newborns have made the days a little brighter for families forced out of their homes by B.C.’s wildfire emergency this month.

At least eight babies have been born to evacuee families in Prince George, and there have been another two or more born in Kamloops, health authorities confirmed Friday. More may have been born with the help of midwives in private homes,

One of those newborns is little Talia Gilcin Hink, born July 12 in Prince George. Her mother, Olivia Hink, was taken by ambulance from Williams Lake before that city was evacuatedĀ but hasn’t been able to return.

“I wasn’t really expecting to have my baby in Prince George,” Hink said.
