According to the latest report by Save the Children, Norway has, for the third year, the highest rating in the world for the quality of life of mothers. It has the second lowest "under 5" mortality rate, the highest ratio of female-to-male earned income, and one of the most generous maternity leave benefits in the world. Ullevål Hospital is the largest in Norway. The 'ABC' (Alternative Birth Care) Natural Birth Centre is part of the hospital. Its philosophy is to provide a natural birth experience, that does not require medical intervention, in a comfortable atmosphere which offers privacy and intimacy.
