ALMOST 85 per cent of Spanish women do not want a third child because of the difficulties of balancing work and family responsibilities.
A study by the Fundacion Accion Familiar found nearly half of Spain’s working women have no children, while a quarter have only one child.
Only 20 per cent have two children and the remaining few have three or more.
The Foundation spokesman said: “Spain – along with Portugal and Greece – has the lowest levels of support for women with children in the work place, with bosses seeing pregnancy as a problem.”
In contrast, Norway, Finland and Denmark have the highest levels of child support for pregnant working women, believing children are vital for economic growth.
