NEW YEAR’S BABY: Meet Coffs’ first bub of 2021

Proud new parents Natalie and Mitch Eldridge are beaming with joy after welcoming the Coffs Coast's first baby of 2021.

Little Ivy Jayne Eldridge was born at Coffs Harbour Health Campus at 9.12am on New Year's Day.

It was certainly a happy new year for the newlywed Woolgoolga couple, whose daughter Ivy came into the world weighing a healthy 3.54kg and measuring 48cm in length.

Little Ivy is the Coffs Coast's first baby for 2021, but was the second for the Mid North Coast region.

Another baby girl was born at Port Macquarie just after 2am.

We are set to run our special bubs of the Coffs-Clarence feature - keep your eye out for the feature celebrating the bubs born during 2020 in next week's Daily Telegraph!

Meanwhile, take a look back at some of our online galleries of the bubs born in 2020 as part of the Advocate's Beautiful Babies feature which ran in the first half of the year.
