Plan On Starting This In Montana? Here Are Some Facts To Consider
If you are entering that time of life where you decide that you would like to start a family, but are unsure if you are financially, mentally, and physically ready, here are some things you should know, as a Montanan.
We all know that raising children can be expensive. Then trying to find childcare for your little one, and all the other worries that come with childbirth, can put a strain on anyone. With that being said, where does Montana stand when it comes to starting a family?
Wallethub took into account four factors to come up with the statistics:
1. Cost (20 points)
2. Health Care (40 points)
3. Baby Friendliness (20 points)
4. Family Friendliness (20 points)
After taking all the points and comparing them to the other states PLUS the District Of Columbia, Montana came in at number 11. So the top 20 isn't bad at all, in my opinion. It seems as though, if you are planning for a baby, finding a great OB-GYN or midwife should be a breeze.
Finding childcare is one of the most tiresome experiences ever. Montana is tied for number one with the amount of childcare per capita, but here is the issue with that, that I can see.
Yes, we may have hundreds of thousands of childcare options, BUT are they all full? It seems like when I was looking for childcare many years ago, everyone was full, or they weren't taking infants, or they only had part-time available. The struggles are real.
