While many folks unwrapped boxes stacked underneath their Christmas tree Tuesday morning, several couples were celebrating with presents that were delivered differently. Our Beth Croughan has more.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Dressed in red, newborn baby Victoria Elizabeth is wheeled down this hallway in Saint Peter's Hospital. And the one making sure she gets to mom safely, is wearing red too.

"Thank you Santa. It is a Merry Christmas," said Rachel Domarew.

In addition to making his way down many chimneys on Christmas morning, Santa found time to visit a few hospital rooms and drop off "presents" for several proud parents.

"Truly a tremendous Christmas gift for us this year," said Rachel Domarew.

Victoria Elizabeth is the first baby for Rachel and Chris Domarew. She was born on Sunday. And so was Briella Jerome of Rensselear.

"It's surreal. It's kind of like magical. Kind of. Kind of speechless," said mom Monica Goss.

And it's the day before Christmas that both Kaitlin Marie Henderson and Tovah Hannah Merrifield-Moon will call their birthdays.

Merrifield-Moon is one of two Christmas Eve babies for this Schenectady mom.

"It's pretty incredible. I didn't plan it this way, it just ended up working out that way. They're the best presents I could ever really get," said Channon Moon.

And for the nurse working alongside Santa Tuesday, the morning was a gift for her as well.

"It's priceless. I mean you're involved in the birth of new life into the world and the parents are full of joy and anticipation and excitement," said Registered Nurse Nancy Chevalier.
