It Seems PwC Issues Reports On Just About Everything, Including Babies

The Telegraph reported the following from PwC’s Lamaze practice (probably):

Britain faces a baby bust this year as Covid and lockdown wreck the plans of millions of would-be parents.

The birth rate could fall to its lowest level on record as chaos from the pandemic forces couples to delay starting a family and lockdown measures prevent new couples from getting together.

Just 569,000 babies are likely to be born this year, according to forecasts from PwC, down from as many as 724,000 in 2011.

This would be the lowest figure since at least 1900, worse than levels hit at the height of the Great Depression or either of the world wars.
