Sixteen nurses at once pregnant at U.S. hospital

It has been a pregnancy galore at a suburban Arizona hospital in United States (US) where 16 intensive care nurses recently found out that had all taken in, Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Most of the sixteen pregnant nurses who work together in the intensive care unit at Banner Desert Medical Center pose for a group photograph after attending a news conference where they all talked about being pregnant at the same time, with majority due to give birth between October and January, Friday, Aug. 17, 2018, in Mesa, Ariz.

They are all expecting between October and January. The nurses, who are due between September and February, will go on maternity leave for 12 weeks.

"They're wondering what's in the water", ICU nurse Ashley Atkins quipped.

Nurse Rochelle Sherman, almost eight months along, said: "I don't think we realized just how many of us were pregnant until we started a Facebook group".

Another pregnant nurse Jolene Garrow was grateful to her colleagues for steeping in to do jobs pregnant women can not do.

"It's like we had some kind of pact going on", one of the pregnant nurses by the name Rochelle Sherman is quoted as saying by the BBC.

Obviously, being pregnant, there are certain things around the hospital that they just can't do.

These include tuberculosis, shingles or chemotherapy because of the radiation.

One of the women said she and another nurse discovered they were pregnant, and were surprised to find that many of their colleagues are also expecting. The salad bar is said to have been made "pregnancy friendly" by adding an assortment of olives in pickles to the cafeteria's menu. The hospital has also gifted them some baby-grows that say "Relax!"

The hospital is also preparing for their imminent staff shortage. "My mom is a Banner nurse!" on them.
