Madam Theresa Mensah, who had delivered some few hours before GNA visited the Cape Coast Metropolitan Hospital, was so happy and grateful to God to have had a baby on a day purposely set aside for the remembrance of the birth of Savior of the world.
The University of Cape Coast Hospital and the Adisadel Urban Health Centre did not record any birth on Christmas.
