According to their personal physician, Mitchell Levy, there were no complications during the delivery and both mother and child are healthy and resting well. The couple have given their daughter the name Drukmo Yeshe Sarasvati Ziji Mukpo. Plans are under way to celebrate the baby’s arrival with a gathering at the Halifax Shambhala Center.
