Council Bluffs' 1st Baby of 2021 Born at Jennie Edmundson

Published: Jan. 5, 2020

Council Bluffs’ first baby of the New Year was an out-of-town guest.

Liam Ace Chapa, son of Aaron and Susan Chapa of Lenox, was born at 9:48 a.m. Saturday at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital. He measured 19 inches long and weighed 6 pounds, 8 ounces.

Susan called the medical staff when she knew Liam was on the way.

“My water broke in Lenox, and then I didn’t have contractions yet, so they told us to come to Council Bluffs,” she said.

So the couple made the hour-and-40-minute drive to Jennie Edmundson.
