I was vaccinated in April/May 2021 in Los Angeles. The vax caused weird bleeding for weeks and abnormally heavy periods for about six months, during which time I was unable to get pregnant. I finally had a normal cycle in Oct 2021 and got pregnant right after. I’m 40weeks 2days in right now and waiting to go into labor 🤷♀️
Okay, so the birth rate might seem bad, but the good news is pregnancies by men in California is up infinity percent, so really, it’s almost a wash ;)
Could just be that all eligible-to-be-parents in California left..
Seems like births were up just before the decline. Perhaps the anticipated effect of people staying in more, therefore having more encounters that may result in pregnancy?
If so, the decline may be even worse than it appears.
Unfortunately, I believe over time there will be proof of causality. However, it will be justified as “Climate Change” or due to economic conditions., etc…. The LIES will never end!!!
Thank you for doing this excellent work! It is a signal that needs to be looked at for sure.
The charts you shared do not show a birth-rate recession for 2 reasons: (1) you didn't provide at least 2 consecutive quarters of year-over-year declines, and (2) 2 consecutive quarters of decline are not the technical definition for a birth-rate recession.
Is that a decline in the *rate* or a decline in the overall *number*?
If it's the number... a lot of people have moved out of CA lately. I would bet they skew heavily toward kid-having age families, since school closures and the possibility of school V-mandates were a big driver of this.
If we now find that rates have also declined in the states that massive numbers of people are moving *to*... that'd paint a very different picture.
The Southern border and immigration may be coming into play here: a lot of Latinos may be coming into California and also be pregnant, which is why the percentage drops are lesser too. A purer picture might come from closed countries such as Japan, where Guy Gin mentioned a recent drop in births too. Or US states that are less likely to get a Southern Border boost...

People think of California as a blue monolith, but politically I bet it varies at least as much as Hungary. Inner counties are very deep red conservative with low vaccine uptake. Adam Nunes country. It would be very interesting to see birth rate data changes by California county.
Fun trivia fact: the American state with the most Republicans is California. They're just outnumbered...for now.
Igor I Hope You are well. You were one of the first writers I came upon in this community. Thanks for all the research.
If unvaccinated young people are smart they will start having lots of children and their offspring will take over the world very soon
There is an increase in people seeking IVF, plain and simple. You are on to the truth Igor.
So in reality those vaccines did work. Who would have thought?
My Daughter Lives In CA. She is PG...and vaxxed. we pray. The Great Pacific Northwest Oregon, Washington, Idaho......would like to see less Californian's but did not want it to be this way.
