Parents Dan and Christina were over the moon to meet their baby girl, Isla. But no one was more excited than two-year-old Louis, Islas loud and proud big brother. 💕 Isla was born at RBWH on 11 May, 10.54 pm weighing 7.1 lbs. 

Todays the first time Louis has seen her, but hes been walking around the house saying baby Isla! for a few days now, Dan said.

It was a really quick birth, three hours from the couch at home to holding Isla. Were hoping we get to go home tonight! Christina said. 

Were sending lots of love to this beautiful family of four this #FeelgoodFriday! 🏡✨

#RBWH Senior House Officer Joshua Sia is thrilled and relieved to know his brother, Aaron, is one step closer to an added layer of protection against COVID-19. After more than a year of working on the frontline including in fever clinics and infectious diseases wards, its comforting for Josh and his family to know they are one step closer to relaxing social distancing in their home. 🏡💉☺️

“This gives us all some more peace of mind at home and while it doesn’t mean we can be careless, it does make everyone feel more comfortable, Josh said. 

“Aaron is a dentist and is very excited to now be partially covered with Pfizer – as soon as I saw the email saying our family members or household contacts were eligible under 1b, I sent it to him as I knew he would be very keen.
