Baby boom: 9 Labor Unit Nurses Are Pregnant At One Hospital, Same Time

It was a baby boom at the Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine, where nine labor nurses are expecting, and due within months of each other.

Nine nurses at the hospital’s labor and delivery unit are pregnant at the same time, due within just months of one another.

8 of the 9 women posed together in front of the labor and delivery doors at the hospital, proudly showing off their growing stomachs.

One of the nurses, Erin Grenier says, “After each one of us started to say, ‘we’re pregnant,’ I think it was a happier announcement each time, and we’re all there for each other.”

They are all enjoying this happy phase in their life together at work, sharing their moments of ups and downs during pregnancy.

“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,” Amanda Spear said.

The babies are all due between April and July and they say that they will be there for one another’s deliveries as they are able to.

Congratulations to all these expecting moms, we wish all of them safe deliveries!

Verse of the Day

He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. — Isaiah 53:3-4 (NIV)
