Here is the blurb from the creator. I liked it, so I’m sharing it.
“Mums aren’t just amazing, they’re superheroes too. From sleep-deprived new mums, to great-grandmothers who are still worrying about their 60-year-old “baby”, mothers hold a special place in all our hearts. But generally they do a thankless task so for just one day of the year make sure they can truly rest, put their feet up and do what we take for granted for the other 364 days of the year – get taken care of.”
28% of the worlds population are mothers. That makes 2 billion mothers. That means there are 122.5 million Mother’s Day phone calls made every year. And that doesn’t even count all the kids who SHOULD be calling their mothers on Mother’s Day.
Average Call Volumes on Mother’s Day
Call volumes rise by 37%. I suspect that number should be higher.
Mrs. Vassilyev of Russian gave birth to 69 children between 1725 and 1765. 16 sets of twins, 7 sets of triplets and 4 sets of quadruplets.
Carmelina Fedele gave birth to a 10.2 kg (more than 22 pound) baby in September 1955. The baby’s name was Aversa. It was the heaviest recorded baby. The average UK baby at that time weighed 7 lb. 5 oz.
The “Super” in Super Moms
By a baby’s 2nd birthday SuperMom will have changed 7300 diapers with an over $1589.00 value. It takes a mom about 2 minutes and 5 seconds to change a diaper. It takes the average dad 1 minute and 36 seconds. Do does he do it right?
In 1976 31% of UK moms worked outside the home. In 2012, 55% do. Of the chores that moms hate, cooking, dusting, ironing, vacuuming the stairway, cleaning the bathroom and doing laundry are included. The most hated chore according to UK moms is “hoovering the stairs.”
SuperMoms in Nature
A female oyster can produce up to 100 million offspring. It would take a human mother 58,038,305 years to produce that many offspring. A giraffe gives birth standing up, so a newborn drops 6 feet once it leaves the womb.
I loved the design of this infographic. It was fresh, stylish, clean, and I even liked the color choices.
While the facts were interesting, I would have liked to have seen some global mom facts, and I think the information presented could have been organized differently.
