The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has released a report which provides a look at the number of searches people are making for “how to get pregnant”.
The data from May shows the number is increasing at a faster rate than it did in 2015, with a total of 5.4 million searches for “getting pregnant” in the first five months of the year.
The ABS said the growth is mostly due to a spike in searches for a “baby walk” (a term for a walk around a house to help with the birth process) and for a fertility clinic.
However, the ABS said there were also more queries about “fertility clinics” and “birth clinics” in 2016 than in 2015.
However, there were fewer searches for the “birth abortion” (also known as “birth control”) and the number was down slightly compared to last year.
A total of 4.9 million people searched for the word “abortion” in April, compared with the same month in 2015 with 5.5 million searches.
