Mothers-To-Be: Pregnancy Around the World

By

Five babies are born every second around the world. These little global citizens hold our promises, deepest desires and intentions for the future. InCultureParent takes a look at the beautiful women across the globe giving birth to our future generation. In each of the countries represented, we also present its ranking in Save the Children’s Mother’s Index. The Mother’s Index measures mother’s well-being through health, education, economic and political indicators.

In celebration of mothers globally, we spotlight pregnancy from Cambodia to Brazil to France and more.
