Record Numbers of People Looking to Get Pregnant

With the age of austerity putting the squeeze on people’s budgets we might expect making babies to be way down people’s lists, but actually there has been a big upswing in the number of people looking to get pregnant.

How-to video website has seen a huge 288% increase in the overall number of people viewing its ‘How to Get Pregnant’ video during the first month of 2011 compared to the same period last year. And city by city comparison of traffic to the film for the same period shows Brummies and Londoners are the most focused on getting pregnant, with views up in these cities up 400% and 268% respectively.

These figures correlate with the latest IRI data which shows that in the last two years, demand for pregnancy testing kits across all UK retailers has risen 31 per cent, with 3.5 million sold in 2010 alone.

Tom Laidlaw, CEO, comments, “Historically, evidence suggests that rising economic prosperity slows the birth-rate. I don’t know if the corollary is true, but we’re fascinated to see that with many people tightening their purse strings and staying at home, we could in fact be in for a baby boom in the year ahead.”
