Between June 26 and June 28, a total of 27 girls and 21 boys graced the delivery unit at Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center in Fort Worth — a hospital that normally sees an average of 15 babies delivered per day.

“We had no idea we were going to be part of this really exciting time in everyone’s lives,” one of the new mums told InsideEdition.com.

Nursing director Michelle Stemley explained the record-breaking delivery kept their hospital staff plenty busy, moving mums straight in to the postpartum unit as soon as they delivered to make room for the next woman in labour.

“We started to get a little tight on rooms,” Stemley said. “We had to order pizza for the staff because no one had time to get away and take a lunch break.”

It wasn't until later that the new mums noticed they were part of such an astonishing event.

“I was thinking that these nurses have got to be really tired, but they didn’t show it,” one of the new mums said.

Another added, “I did not feel rushed at all. I felt like I got all the care that I needed."
