Yes, There is Already Talk of a Hurricane Sandy Baby Boom

A Sandy Baby Boom?

You knew it was coming, right? People are already wondering if there will be a Hurricane Sandy baby boom, even before the streets have been swept, basements have dried, and while people are still in awe of the destruction that was left in Sandy’s path.

But apparently when people are locked in their homes for eight or more hours they will default to having sex, which could quite possibly result in a baby. Apparently the experts are already weighing in and saying that Hurricane Sandy could result in more pregnancies…

“At the hospital, we were just saying that nine months from now business will be busier than hell,” Dr. Jacques Moritz, director of the division of gynecology at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital in Manhattan said. “That’s probably for sure. Everybody is cooped up inside. …I would not be surprised. It happened after 9/11.”

Planned Parenthood Federation of America, also talked about the rise in getting it on while in the midst of a disaster saying, “Sexuality is a very powerful force, and people would normally indulge in sex if they didn’t have anything else to do.”

But the big questions is…will any of these babies born be named Sandy?
