The latest data has shown that despite the pandemic, babies born in the US rose by one percent in 2021.
Despite the increase, the data is 86,000 lower than in 2019.
Dr. Denise Jamieson, chair of gynecology and obstetrics at Emory University School of Medicine, revealed U.S. births had been declining for more than a decade before COVID-19 hit.
Sources said the report is based on a review of nearly all birth certificates issued last year.
Moreover, the latest data has also shown that the premature birth rate had declined slightly in 2020.
