Every parent I know with kids that are younger than high school age are pulling their hair out. Even those with older kids are pretty stressed out.

Relationships are all stressed out. If you were so-so in your relationship or marriage before quarantine, you can bet quarantine made it a lot worse.
I would wager there will be a slight bump of pregancies in December-January of this year, conceived in the March-April timeframe. Right when the pandemic started, couples were probably having more fun than usual. But then it stopped being fun, pretty quick.

After that there will a drastic drop in births as the reality of the economic situation hit people like a ton of bricks.

And dating has be much harder. A bunch of young people moved back in with their parents. That does not exactly give much opportunity for hooking up.

Yeah, if you look at other countries struggling with declining birth rates (Japan, South Korea) reversing the trend is nearly impossible, no matter how much money you throw at it. South Korea throws everything it has at increasing birth rates but their birth rate hit historical lows every year for the past 10 years.....it's like 0.8 child per couple there now?

Once people stop having kids, they'll stop having kids. That's not necessarily a bad thing though.

No its over for European population as far as increasing population. African and east indians are probably the few people that are increasing in birth rates
