Tis the Season to Conceive?
When you think about a windstorm, ice storm or other natural disaster that could befall a community, you probably don't think about pregnancy as a casualty. But that's precisely what happens when the power goes out and people have less ways to occupy their time.

And, according to demographer, Michael Price, "there have been several documented increases in conceptions in the last decade in large populations such as New York following major power failures."
