16 nurses pregnant at Arizona hospital

"I know a couple of us did fertility treatments."That's how I ended up finding out that everyone was pregnant. Did we have some kind of pact going I didn't know about?'" Packard said". The baby fever is just a happy coincidence.

Sixteen nurses at a hospital in Mesa, Arizona have all concurrently gotten pregnant, to the surprise of many.

"I know a couple of us did fertility treatments", Paige Packard, one of the nurses, said at an August 17 news conference, according to CNN.

Nurse Jolene Garrow joked: 'We all formulated this plan to have the holidays off!'

According to KPHO, the Mesa nurses didn't realize just how many of them were simultaneously pregnant until they all started joining a Facebook group chat. One said she asked a cafeteria worker whether he could make the salad bar more "pregnancy-friendly", and suggested the cafeteria add pickles and olives.

In fact, their colleagues are even throwing them a huge group baby shower next week.

Some of the patients are noticing that so numerous nurses providing their care are carrying children.

An official at Banner said the hospital has been planning for the upcoming staff shortage for months now as the pregnant bellies haven't gone unnoticed.

You've got to feel for the other nursing staff who will presumably be run off their feet whilst they all take their 12 weeks of maternity leave, but it's still undoubtedly good news.

Banner Health is giving each of the expectant nurses one of these commemorative onsies.

"Certain infections and also chemotherapy drugs can be very toxic to the fetus", said ICU Nursing Director Heather Francis.
