The full moon
December 8, 2012 at 11:53 AM

So, I've worked in schools and my mother has worked in nursing homes and we know there is a change in the behavior of people on a full moon.  

My mother believes it can affect labor as well.  

What are your thoughts or experiences on that?

    It is a strange but real occurrence to maternity care workers I have talked with about it...
      My babies were born then too.   lol
    So yes, I feel it can affect labor!

    Statistically there is no link but most nurses will swear blind that there is one. At my baby shower we played 'guess the due date' and my nurse friend guessed 12/28 because it's the closest full moon to my due date; I'd be 15 days early.

    I have also heard that it can affect periods and things too. Idk what I think about all of that I have watched full moons pass around the times of my due dates and nothing lol

    My superstitious elderly Italian aunt wanted to know what I hadn't had my baby yet, she kept telling me, "nine full moons, nine full moons... Why have you not had the baby yet?".
    Lol

     I've heard nurses comment on Tropical storms and hurricanes..... becuase of the change in barometric pressure.... tons of women go into labor.
