新 mothers at St. Lucie Medical Center in 佛罗里达 aren’t allowed to have many family members visit them due to the 大流行, so two nurses who work in the labor unit decided to make 圣诞 outfits for their newborn babies to cheer the moms up.
Nurse Lora Shaffer and Pat Vicino made nearly 80 of the jolly outfits for the newborns.
“We’re like the cheerleaders of the nursing world,” Shaffer told WPEC, the CBS-affiliated TV station in West Palm Beach.
“We’re like ‘You can do it, you can do it.’ And in this pandemic, it has been crazy. It’s been sad. Cause they don’t have the whole family unit, like the grandparents and everything. They can’t come and visit.”
New mothers are only allowed to have two visitors currently, but the hospital has had to limit visitation completely at times during the pandemic.
