Best country on Earth to be a mother

More than a million babies die on the day they are born, according to a study by Save the Children.

11,000 newborns died on their birthday in the United States in 2011. The United States are the thirtieth best place in the world to be a mother. Finland was found to be the best place to be a mother, and the Democratic Republic of Congo was the toughest.

The rankings are based on women's education, income, political representation and surviving child birth.
