Transcript If a mother gives birth to twins her allowances for feeding, &c, are -^doubled. Unemployed women and the wives of unemployed men receive similar allowances irrespective of their unemployed benefits. In general, Soviet law endeavours to encourage women to nurse their children, and for this purpose a nursing mother at work has half an hour loff every three and a-half hours for feeding her child. A nursing mother .'thus works seven hours for eight hours' pay. A very large number of the factories and many health and other J institutions have nurseries attached to house the babies and young children under seven of the women at' the particular enterprise. Where I there are no nurseries, the law demands that wherever women are employed [in a factory hygienic accommodation, separated from the workshop, should be provided for them to nurse their babies during the intervals established for this purpose. This rule has not yet been carried out in all factories, but it is already observed in a large number of them throughout those parts of the Soviet Union visited by the delegation. In addition there are various district creches, and a variety of maternity and infant welfare centres, maternity homes, and so on. The following table illustrates the growth of these institutions since 1917. During 1925 the number of these institutions, particularly nurseries attached to factories, has grown very considerably, as we could judge from the fact of the many newly opened nurseries we ourselves came across, but no statistical data was available.

A Scientific Institute for Mothers' and Infants' Welfare has been established in Moscow for preparing workers in the various institutions catering for mother and child. In addition the institute carries out scientific investigation on questions concerning the physiology and pathology of mother and child. (29)
