In addition to his proud parents, Ryan Shaw Jr., was welcomed into the world by his older sister, Sharelle McLean. Ryan weighed in at 7 pounds 0 ounces and measured 19.5 inches. He was delivered by Patricia Heinrich, CNM, a certified nurse-midwife, with the practice of Dr. Robert D. Mixson, FACOG.

To congratulate their first baby of the decade, Morgan Mize, MSN, R.N., manager, Patient Care Services, presented the family with a basket filled with gifts and baby care necessities from the health system’s volunteer services gift shop.
