The surge in deliveries, which is expected to peak to 250 in June from a current level of about a dozen per day, will come about nine months after 20,000 soldiers with the 101st Airborne Division returned from a yearlong deployment.
Blanchfield Army Community Hospital is currently receiving nearly a dozen new expecting mothers each day.
The projected boom will shatter the hospital's previous record of 202 in October 2004, reports AP.
"We knew there would be a surge," said Lt. Col. Diane Adams, doctor of osteopathic medicine and chief of women's health at the Army hospital, told The Leaf-Chronicle."We just didn't anticipate such a large one. It's kind of a surprise."
Adams said other nearby hospitals have committed to help with the expected surge in births.
