ICU nurses pregnant at the same time in Arizona

Baby boom at Arizona hospital with 16 pregnant nurses

Baby boom at Arizona hospital with 16 pregnant nurses

A baby boom is brewing at a suburban Arizona hospital where 16 intensive care nurses recently discovered they are all pregnant.

Of course, it's all a massive coincidence, but bloody hell it's odd. And the majority of them are due between October and January. Those looking for nursing jobs in Arizona will likely find employment opportunities at the center when all of these future mothers take their maternity leaves that each last a total of 12 weeks.

According to KPHO, the Mesa nurses didn't realize just how many of them were simultaneously pregnant until they all started joining a Facebook group chat.

One of the nurses, Rochelle Sherman, said that they actually didn't realise they were all expecting until they got together on social media and it became clear.

At a news conference, the women joked that there must be something in the water, or that maybe it was a joint plan for Christmas holidays off.

"It's like we had some kind of pact going on".

It hasn't gone unnoticed around the hospital, either.

Jolene Garrow, another nurse who is a mum-to-be, said that one patient even insists on touching her belly each night, which is odd and a little bit creepy, but whatever.

"They just roll their eyes!" she laughed. "Also, chemotherapy rugs can be very toxic to the fetus". The salad bar is said to have been made "pregnancy friendly" by adding an assortment of olives in pickles to the cafeteria's menu. Administrators say they've been planning for months to ensure fill-in staff is available when the time comes.

The nurses said their colleagues are throwing a group baby shower next week. "My mom is a Banner nurse!" on them.
