- A hospital in Barcelona has seven pregnant nurses in the same department
- A doctor at the Vall d’Hebron Hospital posted a snaps of the mommies-to-be online
- The image of the nurses showing off their bellies has since gone viral
A doctor and the head of the neonatal department of Vall d’Hebron Hospital in Barcelona, Dr Felix Castillo, shared a beautiful photo on social media earlier this month.
Dr Castillo posted a snap of himself standing with seven neonatal nurses - all of whom are pregnant.
According to W24, the ladies in the photo are: Sandra Cristobal (36), Marta Moreno (41), Pikli Cortes (31), Cristina Jimenez (34), Elena Balague (47), Silvia Munoz (32) and Ana Gros (37).
The 36-year-old Critsobal, one of the pregnant nurses, opened up about working with babies while being 36 weeks pregnant.
She revealed that some days are not easy:
“You look at it and you look at yourself. You have to give the mom emotional support, you have the belly in the middle, you are all right, and she’s not.”
It is not the first time a hospital had several of its nurses expecting babies. Briefly.co.za reported earlier this year on a similar case.
Nine labour unit nurses at a US hospital were thrilled when they found out they all shared the same delivery date.
