Maternity Merit Medal.

As with many of the Soviet Block nations - the mothers medal became a good incentive to form the next generation which would take the plow and the hammer forward for the progress of the various nations. Hungary was no excpetion.
In order to repopulate Hungary after the war, the "Ratka" order was given which outlawed abortion and actually taxed a woman who did not reproduce shortly after her wedding. In order to make it more enticeing to have multiple children Anna Ratko, the minister of health, helped to institute an award for giving birht to multiple children and for raising them in the ways of the Hungarian Peoples Republic. In 1951 the medal was released In two Order of Merits and four classes of the Medal of Merit. The Orders were given for 11 and 10 chuildren and the following four grades of the Medal of Merit was for 9,8,7, and 6 children. Here is a cased example of the IVth Class Medal of Merit for Motherhood.
