what do you think??
2 friends from the kid's music class just had babies on Friday, I believe the moon was full then. I'm not sure what the moon was when I had mine. My mom said the hospital always gets crazy busy when the moon is full.
I asked my midwife about that, and she said, to my surprise, that in her 30 years of experience, it was more often the new moon, rather than the full.
I used that application where you can see the moon phase for any day of any year, including time zone and time of day, and was surprised to see that I, my DH, my mother, and my son, were new moon, and my grandmother, and my sister were full moon. Those are all the natural, spontaneous labor births that I know the exact date, year, time, and timezone for, in my family.
But not a one was anything EXCEPT full or new moon!
Here's that app for those who want to check out their spontaneous labor births to see if there's a trend in their family:
IDK.. but I have always wondered about labor and the moon phases!
From what I've seen, there does tend to be a correlation, though it's not been a scientific accurate observation.
DS was born on a new moon.
Well I started having regular contractions at 3am on 10/23 which was a full moon. I had DS2 on 10/24.
