 After Sitting in Brit Hotel's 'Fertility Chair,' Seven Staff Fall Pregnant

In some off-beat news, a blue chair in the reception of a hotel in Britain has been dubbed as the "fertility chair" after seven women fell pregnant in the space of just 18 months after sitting on it.

Four of the women have already given birth, all to boys, after sitting on the chair in the hotel in Milton Keynes, and the suspicion that it might be behind the pregnancies has made other members of staff to avoid it.


Elaine Ledster, Kim Gidley, Laura Burchill and Gina Ripley were the first to fall pregnant while working as receptionists at the Best Western Moore Place Hotel.

The three remaining receptionists, Alyce Grisley, Claire Fitchett and Seran Daines, swiftly followed them.

"The chair is just a typical office swivel chair, but we now have staff refusing to sit on it," the Daily Mail quoted feneral manager Giles Shaw as saying.

"We first started joking that if anyone wants a baby boy then they should come and take a seat on our fertility chair, but now it's just so surreal that it's happening every time.

"Our hotel is well known in the area and now we will be known as the place to come for a baby boy," he stated.
