BATON ROUGE, La. – On Labor Day, Drs. Lauren and Sanjay Juneja welcomed baby boy Paari into the world at Baton Rouge General’s Birth Center.

Born at 3:25 p.m., 7 lb., 10.5 oz. Paari was the first Labor Day baby born at the hospital. Mother and baby are both doing well.

September is the busiest month for births in the U.S., with birth data pinpointing Sept. 9 as the most common birthday in the country. This year Labor Day falls on Sept. 7. The calendar provides a clue as to why birth centers are so busy this time of year: turn back nine months from September to December, the most festive time of year for many.
