Question: Does barometric pressure have an effect on birthrates?

Answer: Some folks say that when the barometric pressure (the air pressure that can affect weather) drops, births rise. Even some doctors claim that the low barometric pressure that comes with big storms such as hurricanes can make women close to the end of their terms go into labor. One study has been conducted to test this theory, but the results were inconclusive.
