12 Sacramento hospital labor and delivery colleagues pregnant, four more recently gave birth

Sixteen women working in the labor and delivery unit at Sutter Medical Center have given birth or will give birth this year.

Fourteen nurses and two other staff members in the labor and delivery ward of a Sacramento hospital have given birth or will give birth this year.

Ten maternity ward nurses at Sutter Medical Center in Sacramento are pregnant — with three due June 4 — while four more have had babies since January, according to NBC affiliate KCRA. A ward receptionist and a woman on the housekeeping staff are also pregnant.

Last month, Maine Medical Center announced that nine nurses on their labor and delivery floor were pregnant, with due dates between April and July.

Jennifer Genovese, one of the pregnant nurses at Sutter, knew she and her colleagues had that number beat.

“If you drink the water at work, you will get pregnant,” she said.
