Fellow ambulatory nurse and first-time mother Johnson said that instead of making her husband “go crazy,” she’s been sharing the pregnancy ride with her coworkers.
“I have a lot of anxiety, like I’m going to worry about everything,” Johnson said. “To keep from making my husband go crazy, I just talk about my issues here and they make me feel a lot better.”

The hospital posted a photo of The Fabulous Six Pack to Facebook, congratulating the women on their blessings to come.
“It’s exciting because, you see these people every day and they’re a part of [your] family, and now they’re your pregnant buddies,” Carlton said, calling it ““truly a remarkable experience.”
