This figure is very important in the life of a child for various reasons, not just the emotional aspect. Many people are not related to their grandparents, do not live with them or barely know them. Even so, grandchildren and grandmothers are united for life.

According to experts, there is something special we get from our maternal grandmothers apart from their love and affection. Follow us on Twitter @amomama_usa to learn more.

From the genetic point of view, it is also very important. This woman really is doubly mother, especially if her offspring are female. The woman is born with her ovules completely developed, that is to say, that her possible grandchildren were also inside her.

Similarly, from a rather sentimental point of view, in most cases, the maternal grandmother is much more involved with the pregnancy, birth, and upbringing of her grandchildren. The importance of this figure is undoubted for most.
