A number of mothers have happily avoided recently outdated one child policy fines this New Year’s by somehow managing to delay the birth of their second babies just long enough for the new rules to come into effect.
A Mrs. Yang from Fujian province recently celebrated the timely January 1st birth of her kid, nicknamed by the grandmother as “Little Bawan” — as well as the extra 80,000 yuan ($12,000) the family won’t be paying in fines.
In order to prevent the baby being born “ahead of time,” the family purportedly monitored Yang around the clock. “I had been struck with cramps since the afternoon of Dec. 27th,” said Yang, revealing that the expected birthdate was really in late December, “But we still managed to cross the line.”
“The baby knew when to come out, what a nice baby,” praised Bawan’s grandmother, “She saved her father a big sum of money.”
Elsewhere, a Mrs. Xu from Zhejiang province reportedly saved 500,000 yuan ($76,700) by taking extreme measures to delay the birth of her own child — by supposedly not moving for five days, Xu was able to delay the expected date of birth from December 26th all the way to January 2nd.
