    Smile NZ good for mums

    NZ among best places in world to be a mum

    New Zealand mothers are among the luckiest in the world, a new international survey from Save the Children says.

    The survey ranks New Zealand the fourth best place in the world to be a mother, based on health and financial considerations behind Sweden, Iceland and Norway.

    The country would rank even higher, but is brought down by its poor record in caring for children -- the report ranks New Zealand 20th equal out of 43 comparable countries in terms of child well-being.

    Six in every 1000 New Zealand children die before reaching the age of five.

    This is twice the number of the best ranked country for child well-being -- Iceland, which records three child deaths for every 1000.

    That's nice to know. I've tried to live by the maxim "the best thing you can do for your children is to love their mother." A good place for mums is a good place for kids, and ultimately *that* is what it is all about.
