Maia and Erik Ostrom are celebrating the birth of their first child and Bainbridge Island’s first baby of the new year.

Baby boy Kavi Cedar Ostrom was born at 5:04 p.m. Friday, Jan. 3. He weighed 7 pounds, 9 ounces.

The Ostroms began labor with an at-home birth under the guidance of Louisa Wales of Gumnut Blossom Midwifery. About three quarters into labor they then transferred to Harrison Medical Center in Silverdale.

Kavi and his parents reside in the Rolling Bay area on their small family farm, Secret Spring Farm.

Maia and Erik Ostrom moved to Bainbridge Island two years ago to continue the farm, which has been in the family since 1918.
