Cape Fear Valley-Bladen Healthcare welcomed their first baby of the year! Trashawna Melvin and Donald Mitchell, II welcomed Aisha Royalty Mitchell on Monday, January 1, at 7:55 p.m. weighing 6 pounds, 8 ounces.  Dad says, “Her name means life, and we are thrilled!” 


Aisha’s siblings, Donald III, Takye, and Tyese are excited with the new addition to their family.  Mom & Dad are very thankful for the wonderful nurses and all the staff at Cape Fear Valley- Bladen Healthcare – we are blessed.  Aisha was delivered by Dr. Paul Sparzak.


Trashawna and Donald were able to take part in the Expectant Mothers Program, which started January 2017. This includes a diaper bag full of the essentials, a steak dinner or sibling party before the new family heads home and a new car seat.
