Texas hospital marks two baby booms with 107 deliveries in 91 hours

A Texas hospital that averages about 16 deliveries a day said it experienced a pair of miniature baby booms, with 107 babies born in a total 91 hours.

Andrews Women’s Hospital at Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center in Fort Worth said the first boom started June 24, when 52 babies were born in a 47-hour time period.

The next boom, which started just a few days later on June 28, had 55 babies born in just 44 hours.

“While Andrews Women’s Hospital is known as a high-volume delivery hospital, the influx in births was considered rare and exceptional,” Baylor Scott and White Health said in a news release.

“The hospital averages about 16 deliveries per day, and welcomed nearly 6,000 babies in 2020, including 100 sets of twins and two sets of triplets.”

The hospital said the most popular names for boys born during the recent booms were “Atlas” and “Daniel,” while the most popular name for girls was “Gianna.”
