When the pandemic quarantines began, some expected a baby boom to be part of the result. While there hasn’t been evidence of that before now, a Texas hospital set a record at the end of June with 107 babies born over a couple of two-day stretches.
An OBGYN at the hospital said it had expected to see a boom in births due to the pandemic but haven’t seen any change in the birth rate until now. The hospital says it usually averages around 16 deliveries every day and 6k each year; the birth rate over those four days averages out to over 25 per day.
