An otherwise unexceptional chair in a Christchurch office seems to have a remarkable property - it's resulted in three pregnancies.

You might say "well that's Christchurch for you?"

But the people at the Big Brothers Big Sisters office insist it's real.

One day Beth Hickland sat in the chair.

"I was employed here and sitting in the chair for four weeks, and I became pregnant," she said.

"Due to its history, I'm wondering if it does have a few magical powers I'm unaware of."

The company has a new staff member and she's been warned of the 'holy desk chair of fertility'.
