70 days maternity leave is a very short period especially for moms who don't have other choice than keeping their babies in a day care. Babies need 6 months of breastfeeding and they can easily get infections when surrounded with children.

Maternity leave should be extended to 6 months.

I am a new mom who is lucky enough to keep my baby at my parents' in the day. But i did experience a hard time going back to work after 2 months only and I know many married couples who are worried about getting a baby and keeping him in a day care all day long at 2 months age.
