SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — They can't quite explain it.

But the nurses who work on the labor and delivery floor at Sharp Hospital in Kearny Mesa say they've always been a fertile bunch.

"So I guess when we don't see enough babies on our floor we just make our own," Martyna Feathers said.

Over the last few months though, they took it too a whole new level. Twelve nurses are all due between May and October of this year.

"There's always at least five, six girls who are pregnant," nurse Maricel Sadiarin said.

For some it's their first child. Others their second. Either way they've got the ultimate support system.

"To talk about all the things we're going through all the aches and pains it just feels really nice," Feathers said.

With the bellies growing by the day and due dates fast approaching, their schedules are now booked up with baby showers. It's pretty much an endless celebration around here of new life and new beginnings.

And plenty of reasons to be happy.

"We're reliving everything together and experiencing everything together again and it's really cool and such a blessing that we all get to do it together," Sardiarin said.
