Mississippi came in last due to the state’s higher infant- mortality rates and the low number of midwives and OB-GYNs in the state.

Besides Vermont topping the list of best states Massachusetts came in at second having the third most pediatricians per capita. If you live in Minnesota you’re in luck, they ranked third on the list for having the fifth most midwives and OB-GYNs per capita.

The other seven states that rounded off the top ten included New Hampshire, North Dakota, Connecticut, Colorado, Nebraska, District of Columbia and California coming in at tenth.

Jeff Wallace, a business advisor and assistant professor at Snow College tells WalletHub that authorities need to be the ones to make the change for their state, “If local authorities want to attract families in their area—and for a host of societal reasons, it would behoove them—they should continue to strive for greater public safety and more family-friendly environments.”

Kardashian and her husband, rap superstar Kanye West, are currently expecting their third child — another girl — this time via gestational carrier.

The soon-to-be mom-of-three recently dished on getting pregnant with her now-4-year-old daughter.

“Khloé and I had gone to a fertility doctor, and they said it would be really hard for me [to get pregnant]. So I was about to freeze my eggs, and then I randomly got pregnant. I remember calling [Kanye] and he thought a family member of mine died I was so hysterical,” Kardashian shared. “I thought my life was over, that I was pregnant, it was so hard for me. Obviously it was the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

And she revealed her experience with a near-miscarriage.

“I was so scared, I was having so much pain,” she shared. “I mean, at one point I thought I had a miscarriage — I was pretty certain about it. I didn’t know what was going on. I flew all the way home on Thanksgiving and the doctor told me, ‘There’s no heartbeat, you had a miscarriage. Let’s get through it, come in after Thanksgiving dinner.’ Then I went in that morning and he was like, ‘There’s a heartbeat, you didn’t have a miscarriage!’ and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is a sign.’ It was such an emotional Thanksgiving, and Kourtney was the only one that knew about it,” she said. “Her and Kanye, because we were in Miami living together.”

In March, the reality star revealed her hopes for a third child.

However, doctors have warned her about the health risks of another pregnancy since she suffers from placenta accreta.

Kardashian has often spoken about her two “high-risk pregnancies” while carrying her children.

Kardashian has confirmed her pregnancy news in the 10 year anniversary season trailer for KUWTK. Meanwhile, her sisters Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner have remained mum about their growing bellies.

Khloé, 33, is expecting her first child – a boy – with boyfriend, NBA star Tristan Thompson. And Kylie, 20, is set to welcome her first child – a girl – with her rapper beau Travis Scott.
