Awesome Humans: Carey Andrew-Jaja, Singing Doctor

awesome-humans-carey-andrew-jaja-112614It looks to me like this story went viral sometime last year, but our fabulous community manager Kimberly—a new mom—just shared this with me this week. If you’ve seen it before, well, I’m late to the party and I hope you don’t mind seeing it again. If you haven’t seen it before, prepare for all the warm and fuzzy feelings, because this is precious.

Dr. Carey D. Andrew-Jaja of Magee-Womens Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA doesn’t just like delivering babies, he likes welcoming them into the world with a song (or two). He says he learned this habit from his mentor and has continued on with it because he thinks it creates a special bond with every baby he delivers. Take a look:


(I suddenly feel like my own OB/GYN was subpar. Seriously, singing “Happy Birthday” in the delivery room? I love him.)

Thanks for being awesome, Dr. Andrew-Jaja! Those babies born on your watch are lucky little humans to be welcomed into the world with such enthusiastic serenading!

  1. This makes me so happy! What a beautiful way to welcome new babies into the world! I would love to have my doctor sing to my future babies. Follow it up with “You Are My Sunshine.” 🙂
