Valentine's Day romance leads to a five per cent rise in pregnancies, leading to a 'mini baby boom' nine months later, a study has found. Researchers from UK's National Health Service analysed data from 2015.
They found that 16,263 babies were conceived in the week of Valentine's Day, up on an average of 15,427 each week.


Another 16,344 were conceived the following week meaning that the Valentine's Day is second only to Christmas for the number of women becoming pregnant.
