Check out the website of your mutuelle - or ask them directly - for details of the various bonuses and advantages you may be entitled to following the birth or adoption of your baby.
Most mutuelles offer a birth bonus of around €300 when you register your baby with that mutuelle. To do so, you need to send your mutuelle the 'extrait d’acte de naissance’ / ‘geboorteaangifte' that you will receive from the commune for this purpose.
One mutuelle - the Mutualité Liberale - currently offers a bonus of €125 per two months of breastfeeding with a maximum duration of six months. To apply for this bonus, you need to provide a declaration from your famiy doctor, pediatrician or midwife confirming that your baby was breastfed for more than two, four or six months.
