Where you receive your bundle of joy is a crucial aspect of both your lives. With availability of good postpartum care, birthright citizenship, and access to exceptional healthcare facilities and personnel, the USA offers both of you numerous benefits, here’s a breakdown of why you should without a doubt, give birth in the USA.
1. Access to Exceptional Healthcare Facilities and Personnel
The USA is home to some of the world’s top healthcare facilities. With the likes of Mayo Clinic, Rochester, and Johns Hopkins leading the way in the U.S. News & World Report’s hospital rankings, you can be assured of a safe and healthy environment for the delivery of your baby. Furthermore, the USA has some of the world’s best trained medical personnel. As a matter of fact, according to Topuniversities.com, 5 out of 10 of the top 10 medical schools in the world are in the USA. The combined advantage of the access to exceptional medical facilities and personnel increases your chances of a safe and successful delivery.
2. Leaders in High-Tech Medical Care
To ensure progress, medical facilities around the world have to equip themselves with the latest technologies available to facilitate medical care for some of the most troubling medical conditions in the world. According to topmastersinhealthcare.com, medical facilities in the USA are some of the most technologically advanced hospitals in the world. One of the most exciting prospects of this technological progress is the possibility of newborn genetic screening. Newborn genetic screening is a health program that identifies treatable genetic disorders in newborn infants. Your newborn baby will be automatically screened to provide in-depth knowledge of your child’s health right after delivery.
3. Birthright Citizenship
A child born in the United States or one of its territories will automatically receive American citizenship. This is called "birthright citizenship" and is protected by the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
This is probably one of the most popular reasons why many parents would want to have their baby in the USA - not just because of the promise of a green card down the line, but because of the perks to the child that come with being a US citizen. As a citizen of the USA, your baby will be entitled to the following:
I. Enter and exit the United States freely
II. Travel to over 40 countries of the world without need for a visa
III. The right to sponsor his family to come to the US
IV. Access to government benefits
V. The right to run for public office and apply for certain State and Federal jobs
A great healthcare system and the prospect of birthright citizenship are some of the most persuading reasons why many Nigerians give birth in the United States (e.g. renowned blogger, Linda Ikeji). But the fact still remains, that for every successful story, there has to be an exceptional plan and an exceptional planner to execute it. Like the African proverb goes “Plan with a purpose, prepare with prayer, proceed with positivity and pursue with persistence.”
