(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

We just checked out the February/March edition of Fit Pregnancy. For the third year in a row, Fit Pregnancy looked at American cities to determine the best place to have a baby. The magazine examined 50 criteria including fertility services, maternal and infant health risk, access to hospitals and doctors, safety, affordability, stroller friendliness and birthing options.

So what city topped the list? See below the jump for their top 10 and see if you’re city made it to the list.

Portland is number 1. Fit chose Portland as the Best City in America to Have a Baby for reasons such as the city’s low maternal mortality rate, above average number of OB-GYNs, and small number of low-weight births.

Here are the rest of the winners:

2. Minneapolis
3. San Francisco
4. Seattle
5. Denver
6. Boston
7. Omaha
8. Virginia Beach
9. Austin
10. Albuquerque
