DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Some doctors are attributing a recent baby boom in Florida (search) to the three hurricanes that hit the Sunshine State last summer.
One health official says there are more than twice the number of parents-to-be in her birthing class. And another says she has 51 expectant mothers due this month and 43 more due in June, up from an average of about 30 per month.
One set of parents admits that the numbers are no coincidence. The couple says it, too, was stuck at home with no electricity and ended up getting pregnant.
