Is there something in the water? 7 Coles babies born in boom

THERE might be something in the water cooler at two Hervey Bay supermarkets, with seven babies born to store employees since September last year.

Coles store manager Cheran Walker (pictured), who has five-month-old twins with partner Stacey Pike, said it was the only explanation for the staff baby boom.

To help spread the joy, the couple with five store mums and their bubs handed $500 worth of goods to the Hervey Bay Hospital on Thursday.

It was all to thank the nurses and doctors who helped bring their bundles of joy into the world.

A new change table for baby physiotherapy sessions was accompanied by jumpsuits and nursery lights.

Nurse unit manager Pam Harsant said the donations were gladly accepted.
