STONY BROOK, L.I. — As New York became the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, a group of heroic, expecting nurses teamed up to continue caring for other pregnant women.

Elena Lecrichia, one of those front-line nurses – who just became a new mom earlier in June herself – told PIX11’s Betty Nguyen the group’s story and how they stuck together and pushed each other through the tougher times.
