Crozer-Keystone Maternity Services delivers more than 3,700 babies each year but the staff of experienced maternity nurses at Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland can now add wedding planner to their list of skills. Proud parents, Latanya and Marquise Walker of Chester, gave birth to their first child, Makayla Kenzie Walker, at 12:57 P.M. on Monday then they were married shortly thereafter in Labor and Delivery by Rev. Joel B. McGee, pastor, Providence Baptist Church and president of the Ministerial Fellowship of Chester and Vicinity.
It was a memorable afternoon for the couple, following the earlier-than-planned labor. The couple’s baby arrived a little ahead of her due date, at a healthy seven pounds and 19 inches. The wedding was originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 29th but thanks to quick planning and the determination and spirit from the couple, the wedding ceremony was held without a hitch in their private room.
