The maternity grant is one of the statutory public benefits aimed at defraying the cost of raising a child. Besides offsetting the costs resulting from the birth or adoption of a child, the maternity grant also has a health policy objective: to promote the health and well-being or mother and child. The statistics on maternity grants provide information about recipients and expenditure. They also show the amount of adoption grants paid out.
