Ashtabula County woman delivers Geauga County’s first baby of the year

CHARDON — The first baby born in 2014 in Geauga County just so happened to be the first baby from Ashtabula County born in the new year as well.

Tim and Bryanna Martin, of Richmond Township, welcomed their baby girl into the world at 8:51 a.m. New Year’s Day. Eva Cassandra Martin weighed in at 7 pounds 8 ounces, Tim Martin said.

This is the couples first child together; however, Tim has two adopted children from a previous marriage, he said.

Bryanna was admitted into University Hospital’s Geauga Medical Center on New Year’s Eve at about 2 p.m., Tim said.

The couple chose to give their daughter the name “Eva” since Bryanna went into labor on New Year’s Eve, he said.

“We had several names picked out, but couldn’t really decide on one,” Tim said. “We came in on New Year’s Eve, so we decided on Eva.”

While Baby Eva was not the first baby born in Ashtabula County, she was the first baby from Ashtabula County born in 2014.

A spokesperson from Ashtabula County Medical Center said the hospital has not delivered the county’s first baby yet. As of Wednesday afternoon, the hospital did not have any mothers in labor.
