The medical institution posted a photo on Facebook on which eight of nine pregnant women pose. Each holds a sheet of paper with the expected delivery date. Children will be born from April to July.
One of the pregnant nurses said:
It's very nice when you come to work and you see the same pregnant women, you look at how their bellies grow, and you just discuss the things that we all go through together.
Employees are also going to go to each other to give birth.
In the United States, mothers of newborns who work in organizations with 50 or more employees are given 12 weeks unpaid leave. The hospital, where pregnant nurses work, said it was already preparing for the simultaneous absence of such a number of employees.
In 2018, it was reported that 16 nurses in the same hospital announced pregnancy in the US state of Arizona. They argued that they did not conspire to become mothers at the same time.
