On maternity leave, young mothers do not allow themselves to rest and often decide on a part-time job. This is an extra penny for the family budget, and a way to distract yourself and avoid postpartum depression.
There are tons of options for part-time jobs at home. It is necessary to take into account the factor that the part-time job should not interfere with the main occupation - caring for and looking after the child. Here are a few options you can try if you have some free time. If your main job, with which you went on maternity leave, is creative, then it will be easy for you to master the home work of a copywriter or rewriter. There are many sites that place orders for articles or rewrites. The work is exciting, there is an opportunity to earn money and engage in self-development at the same time. A big plus is that you yourself regulate the load and schedule.
The second option if you are a hairdresser, make-up artist or manicurist. You can set aside a corner at home for your regular customers and do the same work as in the salon - only at home. The main thing is to calculate a convenient time, for example, a child's nap - then you can absolutely surrender to work. And in case of force majeure, if you have to leave to feed or calm the child, you need to stock up on the consent of customers. Your services will cost less than in the salon, but for that you will not lose professional skill.
The third option is for those whose work involves cooking. If you are a pastry chef from God, then take home orders. Pies, cakes, sweets, homemade cakes are now even more appreciated. For chefs involved in catering, you can organize lunches in the office. This scheme also works upon prior request. The main thing is to calculate everything correctly. You can even hire a courier to deliver these lunches.
If your profession is in no way compatible with part-time work at home - do not be discouraged, you can always master a new craft. Do-it-yourself crafts are becoming more and more popular. You can do embroidery or weaving from beads both to order and for the soul. All the information you need, from what you need to the sale of finished products, you can find on the Internet. If embroidering with beads is too difficult for you, do soap making or sewing small jewelry. There are a lot of options, you just have to turn on your imagination.
You can also master the profession of a nanny by killing two birds with one stone - to do a profitable business and acquire a company for your child. A nanny's job can be caring for a baby all day, or simply picking him up from the garden and spending a couple of hours with him before his parents return from work. So you will need to think carefully about which of the options is convenient and acceptable for you. This list is not final, the most important thing is your desire and imagination.
