15 babies born this year, 5 more expected among staff at Timpanogos Hospital’s Women’s Center

OREM, Utah — Labor and delivery nurses are used to having a lot of babies around, but this year, the nurses at Timpanogos Regional Hospital had a baby boom of their own.

“It has been a year of a lot of babies,” said nurse clinical coordinator Amy Davis, who welcomed her first child this year.

“When I had my baby, it just felt like I was at home,” Davis said. “She’s just an angel baby, so it’s fun having her.”

Fifteen babies were born this year to nurses at OB techs at the hospital’s women’s center, and there are more bundles of joy on the way.

“We had just a lot of pregnant mommas here working and delivering, and then we still currently have five pregnant,” Davis said.

Davis said working in the women’s center was a reassuring place to be while pregnant. In fact, some nurses worked right up to delivery.

“She actually delivered last week, just a few days before Christmas,” Davis explained. “She clocked out and checked into labor and delivery and found out she was already dilated to five centimeters and had her baby just a few hours later.”

Having so many of the nurses pregnant at the same time helped the staff relate to each other and their patients.

“Just going through this together so we always talk about it at work, and it allows us to be pretty empathetic to our patients because they were going through the same thing,” said charge nurse Holli Rawle, who had her fourth child this year.

Rawle said that having so many nurses out on maternity did create some staffing challenges.

“It’s been kind of crazy,” she said, adding that at least they had plenty of time to hire additional nurses.

The group of moms in scrubs gathered at the hospital on Thursday for a celebration of their incredible year.

“Several of us, including myself, delivered here,” Davis said. “So it’s actually really fun to have your friends and coworkers be the ones taking care of you on that really special day.”

“It’s pretty special,” Rawle said of the experience.
