Last week, Save the Children released its annual State of the World’s Mothers Report. The United States failed to break the top 10 list of the best places to be a mother, which included the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium, Australia, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, New Zealand, Sweden, Iceland and Norway in the top spot. The United States sits at number 25, nestled between the Czech Republic and Belarus, on a list of roughly 173 countries.

The Mother’s Index incorporates both the Women’s and Children’s indexes.The Women’s Index is compiled, based on factors such as risk of maternal death, percentage of women using modern contraception, female life expectancy, expected number of years of formal female schooling, maternity leave benefits, ratio of expected male-to-female earned income, and participation of women in national government. The Children’s Index reviews child mortality and pre-primary and secondary school enrollment. Based on the child-related factors alone, the United States falls to 31.
