Assembling Baby Buckets is one of Beverly Araujo's tasks at her Internship on the Labor and Delivery wing of St. Anthony North Hospital.

Inside each Baby Bucket, new moms and dads find a comforting collection of towels, cloths, baby shampoo, a measuring tape and a tiny hat to keep baby warm. Beverly also helps overwhelmed new dads find their way, restocks delivery rooms, and plays the lullaby chime over the hospital’s loudspeaker every time a new baby is born! 

Beverly will continue her internship over the summer and then begin her education in medicine working toward becoming a doctor. After Interning at St. Anthony North, she has decided her focus will include bringing new life into the world.
