Wyoming Is the 8th Best State to Have a Baby
Becoming a parent is a truly awesome experience. However, it's also a very expensive one too. With September being one of the most popular months for newborn arrival in the U.S. and Americans paying the most expensive birthing costs in the world, the leading personal finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2015’s Best and Worst States to Have a Baby.
To help expectant parents gauge their baby-planning costs, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 21 key metrics. Their data set includes such metrics as delivery costs, average annual infant-care costs, the per-capita number of midwives and OB-GYNs, and the per-capita number of child care centers.
Wyoming came in at #8, which is excellent by the nation's average (with #1 being the best and #25 being the average).
