Could Clowns Improve Fertility?
Canada's McGill University Health Centre is bringing in the clowns to see if they can help women conceive. Two professionally trained, university accredited medical clowns from Israel will present a conference at the MUHC's reproductive center Thursday morning about the link between clowning and fertility rates, then mingle with willing patients in the waiting room. Medical clowns are common in Israel and present in most hospitals, in the belief laughter can help heal and alleviate stress.
