Lunar Eclipse & pregnancy MS.SM Massachusetts 821 posts

They say that eclipses can affect pregnant women and trigger labor.



Tomorrow will be the first lunar eclipse during winter solstice since the 1600s. They say that it is particularly not a good day for "pregnant women" to go outside and those who do have babies delivered on this day are more likely to have birth defects.



What are your thoughts on this?

Never heard of it. A lot of people say a lot of babies are born on full moons too - I don't think I believe it though.

My step-mom said she had all four of her boys on either a full moon or a new moon. I'm hoping I follow that trend, lol.

Medical advice from the 1600's I think is pretty much the most reliable kind there is.
