COLORADO SPRINGS – All babies born during the holiday season at both UCHealth Memorial Hospital North and UCHealth Memorial Hospital Central will be heading home snuggled inside soft, holiday stockings.

UCHealth said the stockings are all hand-made by a former employee of the mom-baby unit who recently retired.
