80 “Storm Babies” Born at Hadassah Medical Organization

Monday, Dec 16 2013

Despite 50 centimeters of snow and power outages all over the city, the Hadassah Medical Organization staff worked overtime to help 80 women give birth to their new babies.

Prof. Simcha Yagel, head of the Division of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Hadassah, relates that the staff prepared for this atypical storm by calculating how many doctors and nurses would be working and ensuring that sufficient food and medical supplies were on hand.

“There were nurses who worked 16-hour shifts because the blocked roads prevented other nurses from coming in,” Prof. Yagel said. “We also had a doctor who came in on Thursday and stayed through Sunday.”She, herself, performed five Cesarean sections on the Sunday of the storm.
