14 NICU Nurses Pregnant At The Same Time At Missouri hospital

It was a baby bonanza for the delivery department at a Kansas City hospital when 14 NICU nurses fell pregnant at the same time. The expectant mothers say that experiencing the journey of motherhood, will help them serve their patients in a better way.


The fourteen nurses at the NICU and Labor & Delivery department of Saint Luke’s East Hospital are due to deliver their babies on dates spread out through December. One of them, Caitlin Hall, has already given birth to a baby girl, Hunter, on June 3. She said “I thought I was the only one that was trying to get pregnant,” Hall said.

Hall said, “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,” she said. “Then, it was about every two weeks, someone else would announce, ‘I’m pregnant.’”

For Hall, it has transformed the way she handles other mothers and says she can sympathize more with them as she herself is a mother now. Meanwhile, the hospital is now waiting for the other thirteen babies who are due to become part of Saint Luke’s family. The NICU nurses are expecting a mix of boys and girls and a few are waiting to be surprised by the sex of their baby on arrival.

Ellie Kongs, one of the nurses said in an interview that she was excited to share her special moment with her team. She will deliver her baby in late October. “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,” Kongs said.
