ICU nurses simultaneously pregnant at Mesa hospital

16 nurses who work in the same ICU at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa, Arizona, are pregnant

Baby boom at Arizona hospital with 16 pregnant nurses

There was a big surprise for the hospital's administration when the mysterious coincidence became known, but they are not anxious about the moment when the 16 nurses would be on the maternity leave.

There's apparently something in the water at a hospital in Arizona with 16 nurses all being pregnant.

There was an unexpected baby boom within their staff of nurses at the Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa.

I was like, 'Oh, well, I didn't plan this.

More interestingly, the pregnant nurses became aware of the weird coincidence only when they joined a local Facebook group dedicated to pregnant workers of the respective hospital.

Nurse Jolene Garrow described it as "one after another after another". The nurses, who are due between September and February, will go on maternity leave for 12 weeks.

Some of the patients are noticing that so numerous nurses providing their care are carrying children. On the menu: pickles and olives. Diseases like tuberculosis and shingles can be fatal to babies if their mothers catch them whilst they are pregnant.

All of the nurses say that their non-pregnant colleagues - some of whom you'd have to imagine are men - are being very good about the whole thing.

The nurses said their colleagues are throwing a group baby shower next week.

The overalls reads: "Relax... my mother is a nurse banner!"

The officials also say they will coordinate with group hospitals to ensure that the ICU will not be affected by the staff shortage.

And they are not coming from the maternity ward.
