Resuming your daily activities, with one or more children, requires a certain amount of organization. If you can, surround yourself with helpers (family and/or friends) and ask them to help.
Your child is sick
If your child is taken ill and you have to work, or if you yourself are sick or overloaded, it is possible, for temporary relief, to call on the Red Cross care service for sick children or the imad (the Geneva domestic care institute).
Worries at work
Various laws protect women, especially against dismissal.
