DES MOINES -- At least three women plan to cash in on a doctor's offer by having babies today.

The Des Moines Register reported the women are taking up Dr. Ross Valone's offer to refund his fee for any birth that happens today, which is 11/11/11.

The Des Moines obstetrician announced in February he would put the fee money into a bank account in the baby's name, with the agreement the money cannot not be withdrawn until the child's 21st birthday.

Valone said he has two cesarean sections scheduled and that he probably will deliver at least two other babies.
