Staff members on the Methodist Women's Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) go above and beyond for newborns and their families. Last year, that support extended to coworkers as NICU staff members welcomed 19 new babies of their own.

"Babies are our business," said Cindy Mirfield, service leader for the NICU. "It's fun to have the nurses be able to celebrate their own."

The staffers had 11 girls and eight boys. Sunday 18 of the new moms and their babies gathered at the hospital for a group photo. Little did they know their story would soon spread beyond Omaha. 19 nurses of a Nebraska hospital unit gave birth to 19 babies in 2019. The group picture was adorable
