Arizona hospital sees baby boom with 16 nurses pregnant at the same time

MESA, Ariz. — There’s an apparent baby boom at a hospital in Arizona with 16 nurses pregnant at once.

ABC News reported that the nurses at Banner Desert Medical Center are all expecting between October and January.

“I don’t think we realized just how many of us were pregnant until we started a Facebook group,” said nurse Rochelle Sherman, who is currently eight months pregnant.

The nurses said their co-workers plan on throwing them a group baby shower next week. The hospital gave them all one-piece rompers that say, “Relax! My mom is a Banner nurse!”

“We all formulated this plan to have the holidays off!” joked Jolene Garrow, another pregnant nurse.
