I don’t live in the United States, being a proud Canadian there are some things about birth that are a little different here than in the U.S. Most of it comes into play when we talk about medical insurance and things like that — but birth statistics are a little different too.
I am a birth-stat nut and find them to be so interesting. I like knowing which day of the week is the most popular for babies being born, which is the least popular and the c-section rate of each area is interesting too.
BabyCenter compiled a great list of 22 interesting facts about birth in the United States — everything from that most popular day to which age is more likely to give birth. I have a feeling many of you will find this stuff interesting too, so I’ve picked out 10 of the most interesting to me facts about birth in the United States.
Have fun clicking through these 10 interesting facts about birth in the United States:
