SACRAMENTO, Aug. 16 (UPI) -- Doctors at a California hospital said the full moon may have had something to do with 45 babies being born in just 48 hours at the facility.

Dr. Matthew Guile of Sutter Memorial Hospital said the miniature baby boom may be a Sacramento-area record for most babies born in a single hospital in a 48-hour period, KTXL-TV, Sacramento, reported Tuesday.

"Non-stop babies, all weekend long … I think everyone is exhausted," Guile said.

"I think if you talk to anybody on the front lines of the hospital, emergency room doctors, labor and delivery, etc. it's always like that on the full moon, everyone for some reason is really busy," he said.

Doctors said they are unsure of what causes the full-moon effect, as there is no actual science to back up the theory.
