In recent years, China's fertility rate has continued to decline is a reality that we have to face, too low fertility rate will have a negative impact on the sustainable development of society. For example, it affects the supply of labor force, weakens the ability of social innovation, reduces the consumption capacity, increases the pressure of pension, and affects social stability. In fact, not only our country, but also the major countries in the world are facing the problem of low fertility. Unlike our family planning policy, most countries have adopted policies to encourage fertility, but the effect of improving fertility is still very little. Therefore, in the face of the severe situation, many experts and scholars have expounded their views and studied whether there are reasonable measures to improve China's fertility rate.
