    A cash grant or cute layette is available to all pregnant women in Finland. Claiming them required a visist to a maternity clinic, raising the rate of prenatal care in Finland since 1938.

    "This felt to me like evidence that someone cared, someone wanted our baby to have a good start in life. And now when I visit friends with young children it's nice to see we share some common things. It strengthens that feeling that we are all in this together."

    "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." --Frederick Douglass
