Number of large families in Minsk growing by more than 1,000 per year

Doctors expect that by 2016, about 5,000 Minsk residents will be born in new maternity ward of City Hospital No5. Thanks to modern approaches of Minsk health, experts note a significant decline in the number of so-called difficult childbirths. 

Last year alone, 27,000 kids were delivered in the capital. The highest birth rate in Minsk is recorded in the Frunzensky, Moscovsky and Zavodskoy districts. 

Minsk is traditionally the leader in the number of newborns in Belarus - one in five children in the country is born in Minsk.
