WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Nine nurses stationed at the labor and delivery department at a Maine hospital are all pregnant at the same time.
- Maine Medical Center shared a photo of eight of the nine pregnant nurses holding cards where their due dates were written.
- All the pregnant nurses are due to give birth between April and July.
This news is a little hard to believe but nine nurses, all working in the labor and delivery unit at a Maine hospital, are all pregnant at the same time. They are all due to give birth between April and July.
Is pregnancy contagious? Well, according to research, the decision to conceive can be positively influenced by people around you.
The hospital, Maine Medical Center, shared a photo of eight of the nine pregnant nurses on their website and on Facebook.
“How’s this for a baby boom?” the caption reads. “Nine of our nurses… are expecting babies between April and July! Congratulations!”
All of the nurses proudly holding their baby bumps and cards showing their due dates. One of the nurses is even having twins.
“It’s really nice coming to work and seeing other people who are just as pregnant and watching their bellies pop and just talking about these experiences that we are going through together,” one of the nine nurses, Amanda Spear, told WMTW.
Another nurse, Samantha Giglio, says that it is more exciting to know who else was pregnant.
“It’s comforting knowing we’ll be taking care of each other,” Giglio added.
Well, given they all work in the labor and delivery unit, there would be no problem with that. But the question now in everyone’s mind is — what happens when all of them are on maternity leave?
Maine Medical Center noted on Facebook that the hospital’s labor and delivery unit currently has 80 registered nurses.
Another recent baby boom news happened last summer at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa, Arizona, when 16 intensive care nurses were pregnant at the same time.
