Hi Gilbert, I just returned to work after my 16 weeks of maternity leave end of Jan and my baby is placed in an infant care while my husband and I work. As my office had moved during my maternity leave, it now takes me 1.5hrs to travel from home to office. Most infant care in Singapore operates from 7am to 7pm and in order for me to fetch my [...]
