Not one, not two or three — but fifteen women who work at one Long Island hospital are pregnant at the same time.
The women all work as nurses or physician assistants in the labor, delivery and neonatal ICU units at NYU Winthrop Hospital.
Although the simultaneous pregnancies may seem like they're contagious, they're not.“It’s definitely something you think, 'Are we drinking something? Are we rubbing our belly on something?' We are all really, really lucky," Katelyn O'Connor said. She is due in June.
At least one of the women says she plans to work right up until the end — and that doesn’t seem like such a bad idea.
"What better place to go into labor than work? If your water breaks, you start contracting, just walk down the hall and you have your baby," said Ashley Leighton.
