Hurricane Florence Causing Baby Boom

Babies Sitting Side-By-Side Looking Away

Doctors in South Carolina say they're seeing a mini baby boom at their hospitals nine months after Hurricane Florence. The number of women have delivered or expected to deliver in June is 52-percent higher than May, 39-percent higher than in July, 45-percent higher than in August and 23-percent higher than in September. Doctors say the calculated time of conception was around the hurricane, which is something that doctors have seen in the past with other natural disasters.
