UPMC announces their first baby born in Pittsburgh in 2023

PITTSBURGH — A couple from O’Hara Township had a very good and busy New Year’s Day.

Rob and Natalie Pofi welcomed their daughter, Madison, into the world at 12:35 a.m. Sunday.

UPMC said Madison was born at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital. She weighs 6 pounds, 5 ounces and is 19 inches long.

The parents said they were not expecting Madison for another three weeks. They were at a wedding in the city’s downtown area when Natalie started to feel a little “off.” The couple decided to go to the hospital.

“I was like, hey, we should go get checked out,” said Natalie Pofi, “She was breaching and trying to push her little feet out onto the dance floor.”

The couple said it took about an hour and a half from the time they arrived to finish. This was a big improvement from when they had their first child when Natalie was in labor for 3 days.
