What is the statistical distribution of time of human birth (time of day, not weeks)?

In brief: Interesting

It seems to be 12am-6am but that is anecdotal.
There is research from the 1980s which shows increase in spontaneous labor as well as ruptured membranes during the full moon. Not sure if this statistic has been done as far as the bell curve for time of delivery in spontaneous labor.
