Full Moon pregnancy superstitions - Are more babies born during this cycle than at other points?

Women who are approaching the end of their pregnancy often hear "the Full Moon is coming, you'll give birth soon! But are there really more births on Full Moon nights? This is a very old belief. And for good reason, a pregnancy lasts an average of 280 days, or 10 Moon cycles, which is not a coincidence for many people. Some theories suggest that, because the Moon has an influence on the earth's tides, it also influences our inner tides, thus it could act on the amniotic liquid and therefore cause pregnant women’s waters to break. However, whilst faced with these rumors, many scientists have studied the question, but have all come to the same conclusion - there are no more childbirths on the nights of the Full Moon. In other words, if the Moon is associated with fertility and childbirth in many mythologies, no scientific study has been able to demonstrate a real correlation.
