Isolate and chill?
A massive increase in the number of December babies could be coming the year.
While everyone is remaining indoors to help stop the spread of Covid-19, it looks as though more people are getting frisky with their partners in a bid to pass some time.
Netflix does get boring after a while tbf.
Predictions are already being made for record births in December 2020 and January 2021 in countries across the world, with UK bookmakers, Oddmonkey weighing in with their thoughts…
“With the coronavirus pandemic hitting Britain, one of the consequences has been many people having to isolate themselves and that could very well see a major upturn in birth rates.
“Many now believe that we will be seeing baby booms on both sides of the Atlantic. Bookmakers believe that 2020 will be the biggest we have seen in terms of births – this century.”
Parental website Motherly also previously noted September to be a busy month in maternity hospitals as people find themselves with more time on their hands at Christmas.
The research gathered by the 2008 US study noted that September 9 was a very popular birth date in the US which would roughly date back nine months to December 17 when the magic happened.
A night that the study notes as being “post-Christmas party canoodling and fireside snuggles.”
We feel that.
Oddsmonkey also added that this year is now 4/1 for being the biggest year for births so far this century.
“The birth rate has been trending down for the last few years, but many believe that will be reversed in 2020 and the same subject some cheeky bookies are 2/1 that we see a national shortage of condoms,” they continued.
Looks like we’re in store for a busy winter.
