An exhausted midwife has taken to Twitter begging people not to have sex at Christmas.

The September baby boom begins, which the 33-year-old British nurse seems to have already had enough of.

“How is it only the 5th of September? I can’t take 25 more days of this,” Mhairi Maharry began.

“If you know or love a midwife, PLEASE STOP SHAGGING AT CHRISTMAS,” she humorously added.

The tweet quickly went viral, with 15,000 likes and 4,000 retweets in 48 hours.

Hundreds of midwives, nurses and obstetricians joined in the conversation online, while a handful of expectant mums apologised for their impending arrivals in the coming weeks.

In Australia, the Bureau of Statistics estimates 250,978 babies have been born in September over the past ten years.

“I can confirm that within the last 10 years, the highest number of births have occurred in the month of September,” a spokesperson from the Australian Bureau of Statistics told 9Honey.

When did you conceive? It was May/June for both my boys.

  • but christmas is the time for sharing the love lol that’s what happens when you spend too much time together


  • Lol… I have September baby! He was due on the 7th and born on the 17th. Found out we were pregnant the day after boxing day so it was a pre Christmas shag.

  • She really doesn’t have a say in it!


  • Both my nephews were born in September and there are so many family birthdays in September / October. My son was conceived in may and born in February


  • I don’t know many people born in September.


  • This may explain why I have 8 birthday party’s to go to in September lol my daughter was born in November


  • I had my IVF at the beginning of December.


  • After having an April baby I swore I would never be heavily pregnant again. I planned my next baby to be a September baby, and he was.


  • This made me laugh! I’m not guilty, bough.


  • I do not like her chances – it will no doubt continue! ;)
