German Mother and Child Foundation

Thanks to the "Mother and Child Foundation - Protecting the Unborn Child", which was set up with the support of the Federal Minister of Family and Youth, pregnant women with a limited income are entitled to receive financial support. The foundation subsidises expenses incurred in connection with pregnancy and the birth of a child, specifically maternity wear and initial baby equipment. The benefits depend on individual circumstances and income. They do not affect the payment of other social benefits (e.g. child benefit, social security, housing benefit).

You should submit your application as early as possible in the pregnancy to ensure that you receive the benefits when you need them.

International students can apply for the financial support from the Mother and Child Foundation without any disadvantages for their residence permit.
