dc.description.abstract Taking into account the negative relationship between fertility and female labour participation due to the necessity of dedicating more time to childcare, in this paper we analyse, with a logit model and using microdata from the Spanish Labour Force Survey, the effect of having a newly born child on the woman’s decision to abandon the labour market, considering household characteristics and other economic variables which affect their labour participation decision. Our results show that having a newborn increases the woman’s probability of abandoning the labour market. We also find that this probability is reduced if there are any grandparents living in the household en_US
