Full or New Moon? App to check births in your family, any year/date

Since we have a thread going on that, I wanted to post this app so everyone could check the known birth dates of people who birth dates they know, and see if there is a pattern of full or new moon births, or neither.

My midwife actually said new moon seemed to be more likely than full to have a birth in it, and in my family, the ones I know of, that were natural spontaneous labors and births, did happen mostly new moon, with a couple full. And nothing in between!

Here's the app: it will be interesting to see what everyone else's results are! Be sure not to include induced labors or any otherwise "scheduled" births.

My daughters were both Half Moons and my son was a Full Moon. Interesting! All of them were spontaneous labors, after 40 weeks.
