If you said yes, and you live in Connecticut, you're about to get a rare piece of good news, you're in the right place. Or, you're in the 6th best state in America for having a baby, according to Wallethub.

The folks at "the hub" examined a variety of determining factors that include: child-care centers per capita, pediatricians and family medicine physicians per capita, midwives, infant-mortality rate, average annual infant care cost, hospital delivery charges and hospital cesarean section charges. They also considered the opinions of experts in the field.

4 -  New Hampshire

5 - Rhode Island

The video was posted by “Adventures in Melancholy” and the host does a great job of explaining exactly what we are looking at. The following photos are from the video and they are of the Hartford site, meaning it was intended to defend Hartford, CT.
