    Report: Mothers in Sweden Have It Best

    Sweden is the world’s best country to be a mother, according to a new report published by Save the Children.

    In its ninth annual Mother's Index, the US-based humanitarian organization compares the well-being of mothers and children in 146 countries.

    The rankings are based on a compilation of several indicators including female life expectancy, maternity leave benefits, access to safe water, women’s participation in government, and the mortality rate of children under five.

    “We should be proud that Sweden ranks well in international comparisons when it comes to children’s rights and the situation for mothers,” said Eva Svedling of Save the Children’s Swedish chapter in a statement.

    The report cites Sweden’s number one ranking in part to the country having the highest ratio of female-to male earned income, as well as the highest percentage of women with seats in the national government. Sweden also tied with Iceland for the lowest under-5 mortality rate in the world.

    Sounds good. But how many Swedish females want to become a mother and more then once?
