MOTHERS INDEX. The United States scored in 28th place worldwide on a list of the best countries for mothers, in part because it has one of the shortest and least well-paid maternity leaves, and women are more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than in most other developed countries. Meanwhile, in several Latin American countries, such as Bolivia and Honduras, midwives are helping to drastically reduce maternal and infant mortality.
