Do women go out of their way to not give birth on Halloween?

Try Nerdy shows us that women clearly like having kids on Valentine’s Day:


Natural and C-section births jumped significantly on Valentine’s Day, with the overall increased likelihood of giving birth being calculated at 5% for the day of love.

Halloween? Not so much:

All types of births — natural, C-section, induced — decreased significantly on All Hallows’ Eve. Overall, a whopping 11.3% decrease in births was seen on this day across the years. That’s a pretty clear indicator that women don’t want their babies associated with hauntings and horror.

Okay, so the numbers are definitive. But how could women exert control over when they give birth?! The short answer is that no one has any idea.
