Eleven medical professionals at a single Missouri hospital are all pregnant at the same time — with two nurses even due to give birth on the same day.
At Liberty Hospital in Liberty, Missouri, ten nurses and one doctor are all expecting babies this year.
Coincidentally enough, most of them work in obstetrics and labor and delivery.
‘They always do things in groups, but we’ve never had 10 at the same time,’ Birthing Center Director Nicki Kolling told Fox4 KC. ‘So, it’s been fun.’
The women are all set to give birth this year, with the soonest deliveries expected in the next couple of weeks and the latest one expected around Thanksgiving.
‘There’s a lot of nurses saying they won’t drink the water,’ Hannah Miller, a 29-year-old postpartum nurse who is expecting her first child, told Good Morning America.
‘One of the nurses actually brought her own water bottle the other night and I was joking with her. I was like, “Oh, you’re really not drinking the water.”‘
Labor and delivery nurse Katie Bestgen is due July 20, while obstetric float nurse Therese Byrum, 27, is due in late November.
