Exponential birth rates push Mayotte hospital to saturation point

The French island of Mayotte used to be part of the Comoros. Ever since the Comoros gained independence from France in the mid-1970s there has been a widening gap in living standards between Mayotte and the rest of the Comoros. This report takes a look at Mayotte's main hospital: the undisputed champion of France in terms of birth rates, its maternity ward is saturated. Over 7,000 babies are born here every year and 70% of the mothers come from the Comoros.
