There's a baby boom coming to a hospital in Arizona, with 16 nurses preparing to give birth over the coming months.
Each of the expectant nurses is at a different phase of her pregnancy, but all are due between September and February.
I mean, it's going to work, even if that wasn't their plan.
According to reports, the pregnant nurses said they all like to go to the cafeteria together to satisfy their cravings.
The nurses are still on duty-so their patients can't help but notice that there seems to be a trend.
Her pregnant colleague Jolene Garrow joked: "We all formulated this plan to have the holidays off". "They're wondering what's in the water".
The hospital has reassured patients there won't be a shortage of staff because the Banner medical centre has a pool of floating nurses to call upon.
However, the nurses will keep on working in the ICU of the Banner Desert Medical Centre as long as they will be capable of, but only if they respect stricter precautions since "certain infections, and then also chemotherapy drugs, can be very toxic to the fetus", as Heather Francis explained.
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. Those looking for nursing jobs in Arizona will likely find employment opportunities at the center when all of these future mothers take their maternity leaves that each last a total of 12 weeks.
Substitute nursing staff has already been scheduled to fill in the inevitable gaps.
But their colleagues are still throwing a joint baby shower for them next week so they mustn't be that irritated.
