A new sociological study has found that women’s fertility planning is influenced by their high school friends. One friend giving birth starts the other friends thinking about starting their own families. 1700 women were involved in the study which confirms the strong influence our social network has on our lifestyle and choices.
We have had many instances of sisters (even twin sisters) who fell pregnant around the same time. This makes for a lovely journey for the siblings and a lifetime bond for the new cousins. We also have fun trying to coordinate antenatal visits for them!
