You can feel desperate That you have children at Home and a Full Time Job. Or you can feel bless you, as me. I am so lucky that , despite the Pandemic , I have a job and I have beautiful children , with a lot‘s of new Ideas.
my Living room is during the Morning an Office and during the evening : a Gym or a Cinema .
Doesn‘t matter if the Flat is destroyed, if you are cooking 6 meals pro day; it is just a Little part of your Life and as all in comple of years. You will miss this Phase. So is io to you enjoy it or not.
An important support for a working mum is a nursery place. When I moved to Germany, it was not so easy to find a nursery place in Nuremberg. Not all the nursery are accepting children in the middle of year( usually they are giving places in Sep) and not all the nursery are accepting children younger than one year. That’s in my opinion is a great limitation, because without a nursery place it is difficult to look for a job, to taking part to a german course. Fortunately I found an office in Nuremberg ( there is one in each city) that is supporting parents to find a nursery place. The woman responsible for the office is really competent, efficient and effective. She helped me to find a nursery place. She is speaking german and english.
I am strongly advice to contact this office in order to get support to find a nursery place.
Please find below: the contact of the nursery office:
The law protects the working mother in the different stages of pregnancy and the early years of a child’s life.
First, the health of female workers is protected, she cannot perform dangerous work from the beginning of pregnancy and until the seventh month of age of the child, as well sash cannot work in the night (from 24 to 6).
The law also provides the obligation to abstain from work for the working of two months before the expected date of delivery, up to three months after (though is the possibility to abstain in a time before the two months preceding the expected date of delivery – in certain health conditions of the working – or the month before the expected date of childbirth and the next four months), with the right to 80% of pay (i.e .maternity leave).
In case of death or serious illness of the mother, it is possible for the father takes the paternity leave or have a part time work.
By Law 92/2012 of the law of the job was reformed., it was also introduced, on a trial basis for the 2013-2015 triennium, the father has a obligation to abstain from work for one day within 5 months after birth. The law 208/2015 (SO-CALLED 2016 Stability Law) the obligation to abstain is two days.
Both parents have the right to take time off work also simultaneously within the first years of a child’s life (parental leave).
In Germany is possible to breastfeed during the working hours.
This right is regulate by a law, the content of which I’m going to summarize in the paragraph below:
Two per day it is possible to breastfeed for 30 minute
if you work more than 8 h for day: you are allowed to breastfeed or use the breast pump twice for 45 minute or once 90 minutes.
These hours are payed 75% of your income.
Your company or your employer has to give the better condition to perform this action: a separate room to breastfeed or pump down your milk must be available and also must be available a refrigerator where you can conserve your milk.
In this law there are no indications about the possibility to gather the working time and go earlier at home to feed your baby.
