Abstract

The purpose of this work is the study of the personal characteristics of mothers who requested the child-care benefits of the project called “Fiocchi in Ospedale” in the days immediately following childbirth. The work is based on the results of a survey led at Niguarda Hospital in Milan involving a sample of 120 women, some of them enrolled in the project “Fiocchi in Ospedale”. The results of a probit analysis show that: (i) the unemployment condition of the mother is one of the main predictors for the need for assistance; (ii) there is an inverted “U-shaped” relationship between age of the mother and the need for assistance. (iii) the education of the mother seems to not significantly affect the likelihood of benefits.
