If we pay attention to usual patterns of behaviour, we might be heading towards a second wave of a baby boom thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. In the past, we've seen a significant increase in birth rates during moments in which societies experienced damage from war and economic hardships such as the baby boom of the 40s through the 60s.
Conceiving during the holidays
New research provided by the Office of National Statistics has concluded that UK women tend to get pregnant around the holidays! Which means that you can expect a major increase in birth rates in the coming year what with corona completely devastating our economy and the holidays being right around the corner.
According to the study, in the past 22 years, most babies were born after having been conceived around the festive period and, as a result, born in late September. The study conducted, counted the amount of babies born on each day of the year between 1995 and 2019.
Most and least popular day babies were born on
The day of the year with the most babies born was September 26 with an average of 1979 babies having been born on that day for the past 25 years. In contrast, the least popular day to give birth is December 26th with an average of 1345 born on that very day over a span of 25 years.
