BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Seventeen babies have been born at Woman’s Hospital on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, as of 2:22 p.m.

Woman’s Hospital could not give specific details on the newborns, but those babies weren’t the only ones born on a special date this month.

On Wednesday, Feb. 2, one Woman’s Hospital nurse gave birth to twins after her Feb. 22 due date was pushed up. Jessica Thomas, a patient and labor delivery nurse, was supposed to give birth on Feb. 22 but was worried about labor complications and her three-year-old son. She calculated when they would be full-term and asked her doctor to move the date to Feb. 2.

Her babies, Jude and Austin, were born minutes apart.
