I'm going to say myth. There were a couple in the month that I was due but didn't have her near either of them.

Everyone told me I'd go two weeks early on the full moon but instead I went two weeks late. The labor ward was packed, I think I got the last proper labor room so anyone who came in just after me would have been in one of the small rooms used for NSTs and the like. At one point my midwife said she had to go assist the student midwife across the hall then came back five minutes later and said "never mind, baby didn't wait for me." It was insane.

My first was born on the full moon(a week late)

I was "due" with my second on the full moon but he was about 2.5wks late.

It's true, to some extend. Many hospitals plan their L & D around the moon, because more women have their water break around the full moon.

A local hospital had a huge baby boom during the full moon weekend in August 2011. :)

I went into labor the night of the full moon with my first. :)

I've heard most L&D nurses believe there's a connection, so while not a guarantee there probably is a correlation!
