Times of year when the most babies are born in Russia

According to statistics in the countries of Western Europe fertility peak in September, although in some countries it can be extended to August. Russia and here is original: for her the most prolific month was July. However, in our country there was another peak - in some periods of its history, the largest number of children born in January. If we follow the statistics published by the State Statistics Committee of the Russian Federation, which covers both the Soviet era, it is clear how these two trends follow each other.

So, if from 1956 to 1973, most born in the territory of the Russian Federation were in January (with the exception of 1969, when the maximum number of birth was recorded May), in the period from 1975 to 1988 peak fertility falls in July.

It should be noted the characteristic trend: after the baby boom of the second half of 1950, starting with the 60-ies of the total number of children born, albeit unevenly, gradually begins to decline until the collapse of the USSR. And since 1992 there is a sharp reduction in the number of born - a trend which led to the so-called "Russian Cross", where the number of deaths for the first time in Russian history, exceeded the number of births.

Noteworthy is quite a significant difference between the most prolific and poorest in terms of fertility months. Thus, in January 1956, the light appeared in the RSFSR 294,461 infant, in December the same year was born nearly 100 thousand less - 197 167. It is true in the future the difference between the two measures will not be as noticeable. In the modern period of Russian history fertility peaks attributable to the January and July are saved, except that they change places much more frequently or even move to the neighboring months. So, if in 2015 the peak of fertility in our country occurred in July (about 180 thousand), then a year later he moved in August (about the number of births, too).

Soviet and Russian official sources did not comment on the trend of increasing the number of those born in a particular month. Perhaps a slight difference in the figures does not deserve much attention. However, women in labor distribution rate monthly noticed British doctors who are more meticulously relate to such things. They not only secrete September as the most prolific for Britain in terms of neonatal month, but also specify the number in which to give birth to the most children. September 16th: on that day, according to statistics in the UK are born 9% were born in September, kids. Accordingly fertile day (when conception occurred), as calculated by the British physicians, this number was 11 December.

The increased number of physicians with the September delivery Albion explain higher seed quality during the cold season. They also noted that in December the state of health of parents is in optimal condition, as by this month in their body has had time to accumulate a sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals. It is important that at the beginning of winter, the human body has not yet been exhausted colds and can in a short time to make up the loss of energy. There is another explanation of the increase in the number of conceptions in December: for England is the first truly cold month, and couples spend more time than on the street, and in a warm and homelike atmosphere, disposing to close.

In Russia, for mothers who gave birth in July, it is a fertile month of October. Given that a considerable part of Russian territory the cold come earlier than the British Isles, this month is comparable to the English December. Maybe that by October, took over the summer forces the Russians are the most reproductive.

October productivity also fits well with the way of life of the Russian village. End of September - the traditional time of the harvest: harvest time is usually continued until the Nativity of the Virgin Day September 21 (autumnal equinox), and then in the Russian villages was time for weddings.

It has its explanation and the January peak of fertility in Russia. Children who were born in the first month of the year - the fruit of a parent activity in April. It was in April humans truly senses the arrival of spring. In accordance with the biological cycle in the human body increases hormones that increases libido. On a nice spring days, we, unfortunately, unable to resist the basic instinct.
