DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the United States has a very high rate of infant mortality? Despite being an industrialized nation, the US ranks poorly in health outcomes for mothers and infants. It has an infant mortality rate of 6.1 for every 1,000 live births. This rate is higher than that of Slovakia and Hungary. It is also nearly three times the rate of Japan and Finland. To add to it, America is the most expensive and one of the riskiest industrialized nations in which to have children. American families rarely shoulder the full costs of childbirth. However, the cost is still higher than other developed nations.
Motherhood is a gift but it includes a very delicate 9-month period. The preparations and processes that comprise motherhood are most of the time difficult. The International Federation of Health Plans states that the average amount of insurers paid for vaginal birth in the US is $10,808. That is quintuple the estimate for Spain's, where it costs $1,950 to deliver a child. This just states that it is not always easy to give birth even in developed and industrialized countries. While this is the case, regular pre and post-natal care is something that mothers can make use of to ensure having a healthy baby. There are different pregnancy apps that can help with this. The best contraction timer app and labour app is available for mothers to keep track of their pregnancy status.
