Here’s an amazing story coming out of New England, where it seems like there may be ‘something in the water’…
Childbirth really is a miracle, even if it doesn’t feel anything remotely like it while new moms are going through it. I think it’s important that we stop and take time to appreciate those dedicated medical professionals who make so many births possible all year round, in a safe and secure environment.
It seems like the ‘Stork’ has been busy with deliveries over at Maine Medical Center, as a grand total of 9 nurses – all of whom work in labor and delivery – are pregnant.
What’s more, they’re all expecting to give birth within weeks of one another. All of the nurses are due to between April and July this year but don’t worry, Maine residents – they’ve got people covering their shifts!
The nurses have been speaking to local media about the news, with nurse Erin Grenier expressing her excitement to ABC News affiliate WMTW.
“After each one of us started to say, ‘We’re pregnant,’ I think it was a happier announcement each time, and we’re all there for each other,” nurse Erin said.
This is really special. It’s so important for expectant moms to have a support network around them during pregnancy, and if that support network just so happens to be 8 other dedicated childbirth professionals, all the better!
