Exhausted Midwife Pleads With Public: Please Stop Shagging at Christmas

September is a busy month for babies being born in the UK, and one midwife in London has taken to Twitter to express her exhaustion with the increase of deliveries.

Mhairi Maharry wrote on Twitter, “How is it only the 5th of September? I can’t take 25 more days of this. If you know or love a midwife, PLEASE STOP SHAGGING AT CHRISTMAS.”

The tweet received 16,000 likes and attracted hundreds of comments.

The most liked response back was by Samuel West, who suggested the reason for the increase was due to Trump winning the US election. Many couples sought mutual sympathy from each other the week of the election. Hence the number of babies being born this time of year.

The Christmas and New Year period is often a popular time for couples to relax and enjoy some special time together. And sometimes, those special times mean a gorgeous new addition in September.

The 26th of September is the most popular date for deliveries as confirmed by the Office of National Statistics in the UK. In fact, September 26 has been the most popular day to be born in the world over the last two decades as it falls “39 weeks and two days after Christmas day.”

But what is the most popular month for births in Australia? The Australian Bureau of Statistics say March is the most popular month for births, which means conception happens in June.

Maybe it has nothing to do with the events of the year, but simply the timing of the seasons when a country will experience an influx of new babies? June is right in the middle of winter in Australia, and December is the middle of winter in the UK and US.

Could it be the cooler weather has us reaching for something to keep us warm between the sheets?

Whatever the reason for the spike in births, it’s not all bad. Think of the birthday parties and cake we can get to enjoy in those months.
