How often do babies come on a full moon?

Tags: , , 8 Comments

It is a belief held by some people that a full moon causes women to go into labor. They think that because the moon controls the tide, it could control a woman’s menstrual cycle. This is incorrect, and despite some initial studies to support the theory, women don’t have more babies on full moons than they do any other time of month. Any comments?
