Wentworth-Douglass Hospital OR Experiencing Baby Boon!
DOVER, NH – There is a baby boon among the operating room staff at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital!
The department currently has nine staff members who are pregnant, and a tenth who just gave birth earlier this month.
The women include a wide-variety of health care professionals including registered nurses, nurse anesthetists, surgical technologists, anesthesia technicians, and nurse practitioners.
The team isn’t sure “why now”, but most are first-time moms (just three have given birth before) and more girls are expected than boys.
The hospital does not expect staffing levels will be disrupted by the many-maternity leaves.
