LA CROSSE (WKBT) — According to medical experts at La Crosse’s Mayo Clinic Health System, September is statistically the number one birth month in the United States.

Statistics show the middle of September record the highest number of births.

Doctors and medical professionals say that is due to the 40 weeks prior which is the end of the holiday season.

“Usually it’s the middle weeks of September where there is an uptick in births,” said Dr. Rebecca Scarseth. “We can usually attribute this to the 40 weeks prior that usually ends around the holidays.”

Health officials at Mayo Clinic Health System are excited to see what the statistics for births will be in 2022.
