INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Riley Hospital for Children had a baby boom this past year.

We're not talking about with patients. All of the babies were born to Riley staff in the respiratory therapy department.

Starting January 15, 2018 to January 1, 2019, the hospital's respiratory therapists had 17 babies. That's nine girls and eight boys.

Not all of the moms and babies could make it to the photo shoot this past weekend but 13 of them did.

Each baby wore a tiny white shirt with a number from one to 17, based on their birth date.
