A baby boom at the hospital: nurses From 16 pregnant

A baby boom at the hospital: nurses From 16 pregnant”

There's a baby boom in an Arizona hospital and it's not coming from the maternity ward.

ABC News reported that the nurses at Banner Desert Medical Center are all expecting between October and January.

"We've been planning this for months, so we feel very confident that we're going to have plenty of ICU nurses to take care of patients", stated Heather Francis, Nursing Director at the Banner Desert Medical Centre in Mesa, Arizona.

Sixteen nurses who work at the same hospital are all pregnant at the same time.

"They're wondering what's in the water", nurse Ashley Atkinsm told KPHO.

"That's how I finished, knowing that everyone was pregnant".

More interestingly, the pregnant nurses became aware of the weird coincidence only when they joined a local Facebook group dedicated to pregnant workers of the respective hospital.

Garrow remarked that as their pregnancies have progressed, patients in the hospital have started noticing that most of the nurses around were heavy with babies.

"I know a couple of us conducted procedures ration treatment recovery", said nurse Paige Packard at a press conference on Friday.

Nurse Jolene Garrow joked, "We all formulated this plan to have the holidays off!"

The nurses said their colleagues will in no time throw a group baby shower.

In the cafeteria of the hospital already had the salad bar for pregnant women. The nurses, who are due between September and February, will go on maternity leave for 12 weeks. On the menu: pickles and olives.
