Have you noticed that more and more babies are born in August and September? This is quite simply due to the phenomenon of year-end babies!
Winter, snow, December, Christmas, cocooning … The end of the year brings together all the conditions for spending cozy evenings with your loved one under the duvet. Well yes: what better than a hug to warm up? If this winter evening schedule seems obvious, there is also a scientific reason for the fact that many babies are conceived at the end of the year.
The phenomenon of year-end babies
Beyond the festive atmosphere, researchers explain the phenomenon of end-of-year babies by the eggs which, thanks to the cold of winter, are more receptive at this time of the year, and the sperm which is best quality. These two factors thus allow better fertility.
The birth peak in September can also be explained by… holidays! Indeed, more and more people do not work between Christmas Eve and New Years, and therefore have more time for cuddles.
