Make Mothers Matter Launches Survey: “1000 days – Give Mothers a Voice”

The representation of Make Mothers Matter in France has launched a survey following a report submitted by a committee of experts to the French government on “The first 1000 days”- the time between a woman’s first day of pregnancy and her child’s second birthday. The report states that, “ensuring good health and development of today’s children, means we act for tomorrow’s parents, citizens, and society.”

The report will play an important part in the development of family policies for the next 10 years. Its objective is to propose a specific path with regard to maternal and child health, provide clearer and more comprehensive support to young parents, and submit proposals on maternity and paternity leaves and childcare arrangements.

The MMM France survey (in French), addresses French mothers or mothers who have given birth in France, of all ages, and aims at giving them a voice to ensure that their needs are taken into account.

As the Chairman of the Committee, Boris Cyrulnik, pointed out, the mother must be secured for the child to develop properly.
