This maternity package is a kit donated by the Finnish social security institution to all expectant or adoptive parents who live in Finland or are covered by the Finnish social security system. It was first issued in 1938 for low-income mothers only. In 1949, the maternity grant was made available to all mothers.
Because of the maternity grant, Finland has long had one of the lowest levels of infant and maternal mortality in the world.
Thanks to the Nordic Birth Basket that baby box is available to all prospective parents around the world now.
