I was in a packed elevator at work when the guy next to me mentioned that his wife was in labor and still waiting to be placed in a room for delivery to which someone else said “wow,really?” The guy responded saying “yep, must be all those hurricane Sandy babies”. I was like thanks bro because  me and everyone else in the elevator really needed to know the exact scenario in which your child was conceived.

Kacey23:  LOL I can totally see that happening. I live in a hurricane area, we definitely see a surge of babies after big storms (snow, hurricanes, nor’easters, etc) because you get stuck inside for days on end with no power. 🙂

I head of this after the big blackout that occurred in the early 2000s, I forget the exact year.

Yup, that makes sense to me.

I have heard if this happening before. It’s usually connected to the weather when I hear it, but I’ve read about mini baby booms that happened after popular sporting events. I think the World Cup is one of those events, if I’m not mistaken.

We have something like that too around my region. Every August there is a HUGE country music festival called WeFest about 45 minutes from my city, so a lot of people call babies born 9 months after if they know people have been there – WeFest babies!

I’ve been to the festival a couple times, and it’s fun.

Kacey23:  Haha that’s funny but why not?  I imagine every time the Packers win the super bowl the birth rate in Green Bay spikes 9 months later.  But every single human being in Green Bay is a Packers fan, I don’t know if JT has that kind of universal appeal 😉

Maybe Too Much Information, but my baby was conceived during the Toronto ice storm we had right before Christmas. What else are you going to do when there’s no power? I’m not sure if there is a mini baby boom in our area or not though.
