LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Something might be in the water at Cassidy Elementary School in Lexington.

Nine teachers at the school on Tates Creek road are pregnant, and two babies were born earlier this school year.

"It's just so exciting to have someone to talk about all the things you're going through and to understand being a teacher-mom and being pregnant when you're a teacher. It's hard work!" said fourth grade teacher Kristi Miller.

Miller is due with her third baby in June. Some of the other teachers are first-time moms. Though no two pregnancies are the same, that doesn't mean they aren't comparing notes.

"It's fun to see where we are in our stages and to ask each other if certain things are normal that are happening with our bodies and our feelings," said first grade teacher Lana Hager.

"So it's just nice to have a crew to go through it with."

This isn't the first time there's been such a crew at Cassidy.

"I got to be a part of the last baby boom, which was just last school year," said Miller. "There were about 10 babies born that year, too."

So, maybe it's in the water, or maybe it's something more.

"We support each other. We love babies, we love kids. This is a great place to get to bring your kids to school with you, and we have lots of support from our administration, too," said Miller.

It takes a village, and they've got one.

"In the future my son will be here at Cassidy and get to have some of these ladies as teachers, so it makes me really excited for the future" Hager said.
