CINCINNATI -- When it comes to the best states for working moms, one place in the Tri-State stands above the rest.

Indiana ranked 15th in WalletHub's ratings for 2018. The site looked at key metrics for women in the areas of child care, professional opportunity and work-life balance.

Hoosiers got high marks for child care and professional opportunities, but fell in the lower half for work-life balance.

Ohio and Kentucky were fairly middle of the pack, placing 31st and 27th respectively.

On the north side of the river, Ohio got poor marks for professional opportunities, placing 38th there. Kentucky, meanwhile, was far ahead of Ohio in that category, coming in 15th. The Bluegrass State got its lowest rating in work-life balance, coming in 36th.

Vermont was the overall winner, with Minnesota, Massachusetts, Washington DC and Connecticut rounding out the top five.

Idaho was worst, while Louisiana, Alabama, Nevada and South Carolina also took up spots near the bottom.
