My question to this was then, “How does this compare to the national distribution?” Luckily, that was an easy Google search and I found this old gem on WikiMedia:

There is some qualitative similarity in that February is the low month. Although with 10% fewer days than the other months, there’s a statistical reason for the dip. Summer also seems to be prime baby having time. I guess those first cold days of late fall/winter and the holidays have some magic in them.
