|Since the onset of the current economic downturn, more and more babies are being born in the UK, which suggests a link between financial turmoil and Britain's birth rate.
Nursery Retailer Mamas & Papas recorded a direct growth in sales in the months following the fall of Northern Rock, suggesting a correlation between the rise in birth rates and the nationwide economic crisis.
Gill Kingston-Warren, head of public relations for Mamas & Papas, commented: "Census evidence has shown that after a recession comes a baby boom and we as a nursery retailer noticed an uplift in sales nines months after the Northern Rock crisis and that boom has not stopped since."
