Nurses Make Christmas ‘Onesies’ for Newborns to Cheer Up Moms

RELATED

New mothers at St. Lucie Medical Center in Florida aren’t allowed to have many family members visit them due to the pandemic, so two nurses who work in the labor unit decided to make Christmas outfits for their newborn babies to cheer the moms up.

“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.”

“That breaks our heart when you see that we just try to be there for them,” said Lori Shaffer

New mothers are only allowed to have two visitors currently, but the hospital has had to limit visitation completely at times during the pandemic.
