By: Ashley    1358 0

It’s a boy! Cassidy and Christopher Wakefield are the proud parents of a son, Kase Carson Wakefield, the first baby born in St. Francois County in 2022. Kase was born at Parkland Health Center in Farmington on January 2, 2022 at 10:32 a.m., weighing 7 pounds, 2 ounces and measuring 20 inches long. Dr. John Cooper was the delivering physician. Kase will make his home in Ironton with his parents.

“It was an honor to be a part of their special day,” said Ragen Amelung, RN. “We couldn’t have chosen a sweeter family to welcome in the new year with!”

As the first baby born in the new year, Ragen presented the Wakefield family with a gift basket complete with a diaper bag, diapers, blankets, infant toys, bath essentials, books, and more, compliments of the following area BJC organizations: Parkland Health Center, BJC Medical Group–Medical Arts Clinic, St. Louis Children’s Hospital, BJC Home Care, and BJC Behavioral Health.
