Wyoming Considered One of the Better States to Have a Baby In
If you're planning to start or add to your family with a new bundle of joy, you've come to the right place.
My husband and I have been married for almost four years and at this point we're realizing how nice it was not to have people pester us for babies. Now it seems like everywhere we turn, people are hinting that we need to start a family. We're just not ready. We're too selfish, especially in our careers. However, it is good to know that when the day comes that we're ready, Wyoming is a great place to have that little one enter our lives.
That's at least according to WalletHub.com.
They ranked Wyoming at number 18 on the list of Best and Worst States to Have a Baby. The higher your state is on the list, the better off you are. Vermont took the top spot. I heard it's lovely this time of year.
The major players in these rankings were costs associated with baby care, health care accessibility, overall baby- and family-friendliness of the state, and more. Wyoming put up great numbers when it came to hospital delivery charges with some of the lowers in the country. The Cowboy state also tied for first when it came to most child-care centers per capita, a.k.a the baby- and family-friendliness category.
So go on, grow that family bloodline!
