I was like, 'Oh, well, I didn't plan this.

The hospital gave each pregnant nurse a special onesie to celebrate the occasion.

"I know a couple of us did fertility treatments", Paige Packard, one of the nurses, said at an August 17 news conference, according to CNN.

Nurse Rochelle Sherman, who is almost eight months pregnant, said: "'I don't think we realised just how many of us were pregnant until we started a Facebook group".

It was "one after another, after another, after another", said Jolene Garrow, another of the pregnant nurses.

You've got to feel for the other nursing staff who will presumably be run off their feet whilst they all take their 12 weeks of maternity leave, but it's still undoubtedly good news.

It hasn't gone unnoticed around the hospital, either.

That's 10% of the nursing staff in the intensive care unit, and patients have started to notice the high pregnancy rate, the nurses said.

"The next day there were pickles and olives", the nurse said.

Administrators say they've been planning for months to ensure fill-in staff is available when the time comes.

Banner Health is giving each of the expectant nurses one of these commemorative onsies.

Well, good luck to them all, and to whoever has to come up with the rota over the next few months.
