With Valentine’s Day coming up we’ve looked at the likelihood of more babies being conceived this weekend and it’s pretty high! With Friday, Saturday and Sunday the top days for baby-making and the romance levels increased because of Valentine’s Day – it’s on a Sunday this year – it’s quite likely that those friends who keep talking about trying for a baby, will conceive around Valentine’s Day.
A study carried out by the NHS in February 2020, estimated that 16,263 babies would be conceived during Valentine’s week last year. That’s up 6% from the average during other weeks of the year, with only Christmas showing a higher spike in the bedroom activities. The survey also showed that conception rates drop drastically just two weeks after Valentine’s Day, and with lockdown restrictions (hopefully) lifting soon and everyone wanting to get out and enjoy themselves, now is the time to get jiggy!
Have a good weekend everyone – we know what you’ll be doing!
We look forward to speaking to you about your new bump very soon.
