Pregnancy and Birth in the US

Some staggering statistics that I did not know but find very interesting.  $50 billion a year in childbirth costs is such a high number.  The number of multiple births is much lower then what I had thought for triplets but more then I thought for the twin births.

    I find it interesting that only 1 in 5 births are induced. My daughter had two boys and she chose to induce both of them. I thought it would happen more often!
