When he was in the White House President George W. Bush liked to say he wanted every child “welcomed into life and protected under law.”

Dr. Carey D. Andrew-Jaja takes that to heart by welcoming every child he delivers with a song, “Happy Birthday.”

“Andrew-Jaja, of Magee Womens Hospital of UPMC has delivered thousands and thousands of babies, but he welcomes each of them into the world, with a beautiful song,” the hospital¬† says in an intro to a cute video it posted. “From “Happy Birthday,” to “It’s a Wonderful World,” he inherited the tradition from his mentor and he has even delivered a father and son! Dr. Andrew-Jaja delights in the special bond he creates with each and every one of the babies he delivers.”

“Coincidentally, Dr. Andrew-Jaja’s mantra is, “Confront every encounter with a smile on your face and a song in your heart,” and it is one he certainly seems to bring to life,” the hospital says.
