It’s a fact! Valentine’s Day is the cause for the baby boom in November


Know anyone born in November?

If you do they may be a result of the most romantic day of the year. That’s right, there may actually be some credence to the jokes about Valentine babies.

Studies have found that Valentine’s Day is a major factor in the rise of births in the month of November.

Next to Christmas, which is attributed to September having the most births out of any other month, Valentine’s Day produces a huge amount of babies.

According to data collected by England’s National Health Service conception around February 14 spikes up to six per cent higher than other weeks.

The only other week that spikes higher is the week that December 25 falls on.

The statistics speak for themselves with a recorded 16,263 babies conceived in the week of Valentine’s Day and over 16,344 conceived the week after.

This is up over a thousand on the average babies conceived in other weeks.

So there you have it. If you or someone that you know is a November baby it may be a result of the magical effects of the day of love itself.
