On February 29, a Leap Year baby was born at Regional Medical Center in Manchester, Iowa. Jamie Ingle and Eric Willenbring of New Vienna welcomed their baby boy, Drew Joseph. 

Drew was born at 1:49 am on February 29th making him a Leap Year baby, also called a “leapling.” He weighed 7 pounds, 12 oz and was 20 inches long. Along with his parents, Drew was welcomed home by his big brother, Sealey. 

“It’s very rare that we have babies on a Leap Day, so it was really exciting to be part of such a special and unique birth,” shares Michelle Radloff, Midwife

On behalf of Regional Medical Center, we want to thank Jamie and Eric for choosing and trusting us to deliver their new bundle of joy.
