14 Nurses Pregnant at Same NICU Unit in Missouri Hospital
Not every day you get to go through pregnancy with 13 of your co-workers. In fact, who has ever seen so many pregnant women in one place!
Saint Luke's East Hospital wrote on their Facebook page, "It's a baby boom! The NICU and Labor & Delivery teams at Saint Luke's East Hospital are expecting *14* babies between May and December! We can't wait to spoil these moms and babies just like we do with every special delivery at Saint Luke's."
One of the registered nurses who work in the labor and delivery unit, Caitlin Hall, was the first one of the group to have given birth. She welcomed her newborn daughter, Hunter, on June 3rd.
The new and expecting mothers were interviewed on Good Morning America. The women shared their stories, were given thoughtful gifts by the show and one more nurse revealed that she was pregnant. That makes 15 babies!
Hall told Fox News, "I thought I was the only one that was trying to get pregnant. It was my first pregnancy, so I was trying to keep quiet until about 12 weeks, but other people started announcing, so I told everyone as well. Then, it was about every two weeks, someone else would announce, ‘I’m pregnant.'"
Hall said that now she has given birth, she can help sympathize with and comfort her pregnant patients as they come into the hospital.
The hospital located in Kansas City is now waiting to welcome13 more babies into their Saint Luke family. The nurses got together to take pictures of who is having a boy, who is having a girl, and who is having a surprise!
Combined, the due dates for the nurses are spread out all through December.
"We can't wait to spoil these moms and babies just like we do with every special delivery at Saint Luke's," the hospital wrote in a Facebook post, on June 8.
Registered Nurse Ellie Kongs told Fox News, "We have such a different perspective [on pregnancies] as OB nurses, so to be able to experience this all together has been such a relief but also really exciting to go through this season together."
