Jan 02 2014 | 02:33 AM

Little Maci Berlingeri is “first” in more ways than one. She’s the first baby of 2014 born at Wayne Memorial Hospital’s New Beginnings Birthing Suites and the first child for her mom, 31-year-old Candice Milk of Hankins, N.Y. With the help of board-certified Obstetrician Thomas M. O’Brien, MD, Maci entered the world at 1:49 am at 6 pounds, 2.2 ounces. She joins two half siblings at home. Wayne Memorial staff presented Mom and Dad Joshua Berlingeri, 39, with a “First Baby” basket full of goodies.
