I know there is a full moon tonight, and i was wondering how many of you actually went into labor around the time of a full moon? I know its just an old wives tale, but i'm hoping it works for me!

I have heard that a lot of women have before but its only if their bodies are ready. Something about the gravitational pull, but like you said it is an old wives tale. I know that the hospitals (L&D) are busier on the days of a full moon as well.

yep.   yep.    yep.   !



So I had no idea about this until after my kids were a little older, turned out that they were born during the Full Moon Phase and I didn't even know it then!

You're braver than you believe. Stronger than you seem. And smarter than you think.

- Christopher Robin in Pooh's Grand Adventure



A healthy woman who delivers spontaneously performs a job that cannot be improved upon.

Aidan MacFarlane author of The Psychology of Childbirth (1977)

Technology has turned the fetus into
a patient, reducing the mother to being the 'maternal environment' and
preventing attachment until after the ultrasound has shown the fetus to
be 'normal.'

- Jennifer Hall


The
traditional midwife believes that birth proceeds in a spiral fashion:
labor starts, stops and starts, while the baby goes down, up and down,
and the cervix opens, closes and opens. Nature has no design for
failure; she holds her own meaning for success.

So i was curious, and i looked it up, my son was born 4 days after a full moon in September 2005! This could be a good sign!

It didn't work for me when I was overdue with my first, but here's hoping it works for you all!!!
