Hurricane Sandy Babies

May 28, 2013 § Leave a comment

Holy cow.  We took the kids to Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City today, and the park was FULL of mommies who are REALLY, REALLY PREGNANT.  I was freaked-out until I remembered a little news story that’s back in the headlines, nearly EIGHT MONTHS after Hurrcane Sandy.

Hospitals and clinics in the areas impacted by Sandy are seeing an increase in women with due dates in late July and early August, according to The New York Post. In some cases, it’s even as high as a 30 percent spike.

“We started noticing a couple of weeks ago that we were getting really busy with phone calls and lab results and charts. We were like, what is going on here?” Linda Roberts, a nurse manager at an OB/GYN office in Westchester, told The Post.

I guess Long Island City got hit with a blackout during Sandy last October…
