And as in all things money plays a key role in the stress department, which also makes the Granite State shine, ranked second in affordability for Cesarean delivery and third in normal delivery.

The average conventional delivery is more than $10,000, according to the WalletHub report released today on 2020's Best and Worst States to Have a Baby.

The data set ranges from hospital conventional-delivery charges to annual average infant-care costs to pediatricians per capita.
