The purpose of this work is to identify 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 of Milan and involving a sample of about 120 women, some of them enrolled in the project “Fiocchi in Ospedale”. 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 aninverted “U-shaped” relationship between age of the mother and the need for assistance; (iii) the education of the mother does not affect the likelihood of receiving benefits; (iv) foreign mothers are more likely to need assistance.
