It turns out that today, January 2 is actually National Baby-Making Day

In case you hadn’t heard, today – January 2 – is National Baby-Making Day!

That’s right, for couples looking to conceive, today is apparently the day to get down to business.

In New Zealand, most births actually happen across September and October, making the Christmas and New Year holiday period the most popular time to fall pregnant.

And if you want to get really specific, a study has suggested that a lot of couples hoping to cook up some offspring actually make love at 10.36pm on this most favoured day of conception.

The founder of Channel Mum, Siobhan Freegard: "Falling pregnant isn’t always easy so couples who have been trying a while will attempt almost anything to help.

''While there isn’t much medical science to back up these tips, our members swear they have all helped and we have hundreds of bouncing new babies to prove it.

''As long as you have fun trying, it’s always worth giving it a go."

There you have it! Happy Baby-Making Day and good luck to all the couples out there!
