Scott Koedel and Christel Fredrikson-Koedel of Harbour Drive in Ocean Ridge are pleased to announce the arrival of their firstborn, Katniss Alina Koedel, at 12:12 p.m., on Feb. 21. Katniss was 6 pounds, 9 ounces, and 21 inches in length.
She is a bona fide Ocean Ridge resident, having been born at home with the able assistance of licensed midwife Miriam Pearson-Martinez and a doula.
The mother is originally from Washington state and the father originally from Pittsburgh. They met at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., in 1997, were married in Tunis, Tunisia, in 2007, and moved to Ocean Ridge in 2009, where they are both looking forward to raising little Katniss Alina.
Scott is a corporate restructuring executive and currently the president of Don Meyler Inspections, an insurance industry inspection firm.
The birth sent a wave of surprise throughout the father’s family, as Scott represents the sixth (and last!) consecutive generation of exclusively boys. Announcement submitted by the family
