Bringing Up Toddlers

Everything for parents with young children living in Luxembourg: with information on health matters, child benefits and childcare...

In Luxembourg mothers-to-be are closely monitored and undergo a number of compulsory medical examinations and a dental check. It is common practice for an obstetrician to oversee the birth. Following the birth, mothers stay in the hospital or clinic between five and ten days and longer after a caesarean.

Mothers are entitled to eight weeks maternity leave before the expected date of delivery, and another eight weeks after the birth with an additional four weeks if breastfeeding, multiple birth or premature delivery.
