Unique Milestone for Epworth Geelong Maternity
The Epworth Geelong maternity team celebrated a unique milestone with the arrival of Rowdy Pastyn in February.
Rowdy’s parents Sarah and Luke were the first couple to welcome a second child (who wasn’t a twin) at Epworth Geelong. Rowdy joins big brother Cody who was born at Epworth Geelong in November 2017 plus older brothers Jordy (5 years) and Boyd (3 years) who were both born in South Australia.
Cody got to meet his baby brother for the first time after waking from a nap. Sarah recalled that when Cody met Rowdy for the first time it was the cutest moment and that he continues to show lots of affection by patting and kissing his baby brother (gently of course).
We look forward to hearing all about the adventures of the Pastyn brothers along the way!
