This paper deals with the Neumann eigenvalue problem for the Hermite operator defined in a convex, possibly unbounded, planar domain $\Omega$, having one axis of symmetry passing through the origin. We prove a sharp lower bound for the first eigenvalue $\mu_1^{odd}(\Omega)$ with an associated eigenfunction odd with respect to the axis of symmetry. Such an estimate involves the first eigenvalue of the corresponding one-dimensional problem.
