Hall said she was surprised to find out that so many of her colleagues were also pregnant.

Hall said:

“I thought I was the only one that was trying to get pregnant. It was my first pregnancy, so I was trying to keep it secret until about 12 weeks, but other people started announcing, so I told everyone as well. Then, it was about every two weeks, someone else would announce, ‘I’m pregnant.’”

Hall said that becoming a mother has changed her perspective as a nurse. She said she can empathize more with other mothers and offer them more support.

The hospital is now preparing for the arrival of the other 13 babies. The nurses are expecting a mix of boys and girls, with some choosing to keep the gender a surprise.

We can’t wait to spoil these moms and babies just like we do with every special delivery at Saint Luke’s,” the hospital wrote.

One of the expecting nurses, Ellie Kongs, who works in the NICU, said she was happy to share this experience with her team. She is due in late October.

Kongs said:

“We have such a different perspective [on pregnancies] as OB nurses, so to be able to experience this all together has been such a relief but also really exciting to go through this season together."
