Does the moon really affect when babies are born?

 Are there more births on full moon?

We often hear the term “full moon babies”, but what is the truth behind this oft-repeated notion? Does the full moon really impact the frequency of births in any measurable way? In this blog post, we will be exploring the evidence for and against this age-old belief. For centuries, midwives and people in many cultures around the world have associated the full moon with an increase in births, as it is believed to have an effect on fertility and a woman’s menstrual cycle. While some studies have pointed to a possible link between the full moon and the number of births, other research has failed to consistently confirm this relationship. We will be taking a closer look at the evidence for and against the full moon’s influence on birth rates, and discussing the implications for modern healthcare. We will also be considering other factors that may contribute to pregnancy and birth rates and how medical professionals can use this information to create effective and efficient practices.

Are there more births on full moon?
As the moon waxes and wanes, it’s a natural phenomenon that has been observed and contemplated by mankind since ancient times. While many believe that a full moon can bring out certain characteristics in people, as well as animals, there is also a belief that it can influence other aspects of life, such as childbirth. Many have questioned if babies are more likely to be born on a full moon, or if it’s just an old wives’ tale. In this blog post, we will take a look at the available evidence and determine if there are more births on the full moon or if it’s just a myth. We will also explore some theories as to why this may be the case and discuss the possible implications for those expecting.
 Many studies going back hundreds of years have demonstrated that there are not more births on a full moon. It is a MTYH.
