This blog post shares some information on pregnancy delivery based on responses that PowerMoms like you have shared with us. The more PowerMoms we have, the more we learn from each other!

Your Data Helps Us Understand: Where most PowerMoms are having their babies!

Terms to know: The Area Deprivation Index (ADI) – a tool that researchers often use to measure how much economic and social disadvantages there are in specific neighborhoods. This lets them understand and compare the challenges that different communities or neighborhoods face.

To gain even MORE insights, we need more participation from PowerMoms like you!
