    We avg. about 10K births per year where I work. This year we will exceed that by approx. 2,000. I chalk the increase up to 9/11. I have heard that percentages are up nationwide.

    Hi all!
    Our rate is about 800+ a month....about 10,000 a year. I work in a great hospital and patient/nurse ratio is 1:1. Although some may feel it's a baby factory, we feel stronger for our numbers. We do it, and do it well with a high satisfaction rate among our patients. I'm very proud to work there, and proud to have had my children there!
    Sorry so long winded

    We do about 30 a month! The most at any facility that I have worked at is about 60 month. Y'all are busy!

    As a new unit, we started out doing 20-30 deliveries/month. Then, in about July, our volume has been sharply increasing. Last month, we joined the "100+ Club" WOW! Since we were staffed for a lower volume (rather than have everyone losing hours all the time)...we've had some growing pains to say the least, as we start massive hiring!

    But...we have awesome staff, management, and doctors! So, it makes it easier to cope until more staff is brought in!

    We have about 200-250 a month. We just pulled even with the largest hospital in our town. We only have 18 postpartum beds and 7 labor rooms and 7 LDR's. The floor has been full with patients waiting in the back for rooms every day I've worked for the last 6 months.

    When I first went PRN 3 years ago I used to get called off or put on call alot. Now I NEVER get called.

    300+ a month here. Definitely saw an increase from 9/11. Used to work in a Naval Hospital and we could tell you exactly when the deployed guys came home. After Desert storm, we got slammed..called it Desert Stork!
