It looks like the pandemic baby boom is finally upon us. It came a little later than expected, but it's definitely a thing at Andrews Women's Hospital at Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center in Texas.
The previous record of 48 births in 41 hours was broken not once, but twice between June 24-28, totaling 107 babies in 91 hours.
Man I'm glad that I'm not a labor and delivery nurse at this hospital.
The revolving door of patients coming in must have been insane! According to one L&D Nurse on staff,
"Everybody has to pull together to make sure that we were able to get our moms moved through as quickly as possible so they would deliver, and, after they had their recovery period, we would get them out to their next room to their postpartum room right away so that we could open up another room in labor and delivery to get these patients in."
The nurses at Andrews Women's Hospital speculate that the pandemic baby boom has turned into a post-pandemic boom as many parents-to-be waited for things to settle down a bit before expanding their families.
Now they're all starting to pop them out at one time.
"I don't think it's going away," Dr. Herd of Andrews Women's Hospital said. "Seven or eight months from now, we're going to see lots of ... population growth."
Post-pandemic babies are arriving y'all and I am HERE 👏 FOR 👏 IT 👏.
