A midwife's plea to the people of the UK has gone viral, after she vented on the tricky subject of loads of babies being born in September following drunken Christmas intercourse the previous year.
Apparently this is statistically borne out by the numbers, which say that September 26 is the most common birthday in the UK -- nine months after the big day of eating and boredom -- with around 2,000 babies hitting the plastic sheeting on the 26th, compared with the usual daily average of 1,800 wiggling out.
London midwife Mhairi Maharry made her claim on Twitter, asking: "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," a plea that struck a chord with health workers across the country and landed her with a five-figure number of likes. Rather than bask in this social media success she's temporarily locked her account, as there are babies coming out of the walls and she could do without non stop notifications. [The Times]
