A Texas hospital experienced a baby boom with 48 newborns delivered in just 41 hours. The nursery at Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center in Fort Worth was packed as there was an influx of babies into the world between June 26 and June 28. While the hospital is known for its high-delivery rates, this stream in births was considered rare and exceptional. Most babies are born in July, August and September, according to Texas state records.

Extra staff were called in as labour teams worked around the clock to deliver 27 baby girls and 21 baby boys, including one set of twins. “Congrats to the families on their sweet new additions!” the hospital wrote on its Facebook page alongside a video of the full nursery. The twins born during the baby boom last week were the 41st set of twins born at the hospital this year.

The hospital averages about 15 deliveries per day and welcomed nearly 5700 babies in 2017, including 101 sets of twins and two sets of triplets. The name ‘Isaiah’ was a popular one with three of the babies were given that name. This is the second baby boom to happen at a Baylor Scott & White hospital in the past two weeks. Between June 17 and June 19, staff at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas welcomed 42 babies in 48 hours.
