13 Nurse Co-Workers Get, Have Babies

SHREVEPORT, La. -- You might think there's something contagious going around a Shreveport hospital.

Thirteen nurses from the new-born intensive-care unit are having babies.

Joyce Smith has worked in the NICU at the Christus Schumpert Sutton Children's Medical Center for nearly 30 years. She said people there are warning the staff there must be something in the water.

Smith said that they've had pregnant staff before but not all at the same time. Two of the 13 women have already given birth, one is a new foster mom and ten more are expecting.

Obstetrician Kerry Tynes said all those pregnant nurses are keeping him on his toes.
