  • Pre-natal leave:  how is sickness leave paid during pregnant?
  • Post-natal leave: Length and provisions to the federal maternity leave, how to prolong maternity leave, cantonal child allowance.

The separate workshop Coaching for Moms Returning to Work is recommended to take one month prior returning to work and covers the following points:
