At some stage after the birth of a child many mothers decide to return to work. If this is in the first months or years of your child's life there are things that you can do that make the change easier for yourself and for your baby or toddler.
The Raising Children Network has many topics about going back to work in their Work and child care section: (Raising Children website is produced with the help of an extensive network including the Australian Government.)
Also Pregnancy, birth and baby Pregnancy, Birth and Baby is a national Australian Government service providing support and information for expecting parents and parents of children, from birth to 5 years of age.
The information on this site should not be used as an alternative to professional care. If you have a particular problem, see a doctor, or ring the Parent Helpline on 1300 364 100 (local call cost from anywhere in South Australia).
This topic may use 'he' and 'she' in turn - please change to suit your child's sex.
