9 registered nurses at hospital pregnant at very same time A small infant boom is taking place at one hospital in Maine. 9 labor as well as shipment registered nurses from the same system at Maine Medical Center are all expecting, and also they’re all due between April and July.
The hospital introduced the pregnancies on Facebook Monday, congratulating the nurses. Eight of them are included in the image, holding items of paper with their due days on them.
Just how’s this for a baby boom? Nine of our registered nurses (8 of whom are in this photo) are expecting infants between April as well as July! Congratulations!
Uploaded by Maine Medical Center on Monday, March 25, 2019 Brittany Verville, one of the moms-to-be, also shared photos of the team on Facebook, writing, “Something is absolutely in the water here at Maine Medical Center on the Labor and also Delivery Unit!”
“I do not believe it strike residence up until we took a picture and also it was on social media and also we were obtaining all this interest,” Registered Nurse Lonnie Soucie informed CBS associate WGME-TV. “And then it resembled, ‘Whoa, you weren’t joking!'”
The nurses are all really supportive of each various other, as is their work environment. “It’s great to speak with everyone. Troubleshoot as well as respond to inquiries, as well, because I’m sort of a professional,” Registered Nurse and mother-of-three Rachel Stellmach stated.
“Don’t fret! We have a plan,” the medical facility created on Facebook, in reaction to growing issues about staffing issues. It claims it is fully prepared to cover all nine of the registered nurses’ shifts when they are on maternal leave.
This isn’t the very first time such a coincidence has actually happened. In July, six nurses in the same North Carolina health center system found out they were all expectant at the very same time.
