Dr. Andrew-Jaja inherited the tradition from his mentor, an older obstetrician and gynecologist on staff, and sings “Happy Birthday” and “It’s a Wonderful World” to each baby.

“When I’m singing to those babies, I’m singing to a future important person,” says Andrew-Jaja. “It’s a beautiful world we live in. You forget about all the crisis going on everywhere for a moment when you see that miracle of life in front of you.”

Dr. Andrew-Jaja delights in developing a unique bond with each and every baby he delivers. His mantra is “Confront every encounter with a smile on your face and a song in your heart,” something he practices every day. In this video interview below, watch as Dr. Andrew-Jaja sings to two beautiful newborns, one of which is the son of a former baby whom Dr. Andrew-Jaja delivered decades ago.
