Charles was 7 pounds, 10 ounces and 20.5 inches long.

St. Peter's is grateful to a handful of local businesses who helped supply a beautiful basket filled with baby items including donations from Van’s Thriftway Helena, Lasso the Moon, Wild Child Collective, ExplorationWorks and Dinners Done Right.

The family (and every family who has a baby at St. Peter's throughout the year) also received a tote bag from the St. Peter's Health Foundation Arlene Mathews Cherished Babies Fund with a Halo swaddle sack, baby sun hat, gift certificate to the St. Peter's gift shop as well as skin care information/education for parents of infants.

In 2022, 672 babies were born at St. Peter's.
