Midtown Medical welcomes first baby of 2018

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Midtown Medical Center is welcoming its first baby of the year.

Journey Williams was born Jan. 1 at 3:34 a.m. Journey was born weighing 8 pounds 6 ounces to India and Te'Shawn Williams.

Journey's mother was taken to the hospital Friday after her water broke during a trip to the grocery store with her husband.

"I told him I wanted to go grocery shopping at that point I couldn't do that by myself. So, we were supposed to go grocery shopping on Friday and I think that's what started me in labor. As soon as I got into my driveway my water broke. As soon as I put the car in park, my water broke," said India Williams.

She says her daughter is named Journey because this year has been a 'journey' for them.
