Rub a Statue, Get Knocked Up?

Is getting pregnant on top of your to-do list? How about giving an old superstition a try?

Ripley's Believe It or Not, believe it or not, thinks they have the ticket for women who are trying to get pregnant. Fertility statues, believed to have boosted the fertility of at least 2,000 women -- just by touching it -- are currently on display at Ripley's. According to reports, some of the women had been told by doctors that they could never get pregnant. For moms whose families are complete, it might be best to steer clear of the wooden wonders.

The five-foot statues originally hail from West Africa and are currently on display at the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium in Hollywood, California. As a special treat for women who hanker for more kids, entrance is free on Mother's Day with the purchase of a child's ticket.

Even Wendy, one of momlogic's participants in our Conception Diaries series, headed down to Ripley's to give the statue a try. Did it work? Check back on Thursday to find out!

Well, I don’t know if I really believe it - but my boyfriend and I stayed pretty far away from them when we went to the museums in Ocean City, ME and NYC.

If your on this website you want a baby right? Why not try it? Over 2,000 women would argue with you, they were told they couldn’t get pregnant. Believe It or Not! they did get pregnant!
