DE JESUS ANDRADE, Cristiano; DOVAO PRAUN, Lucieneida  e  CAPELAO AVOGLIA, Hilda Rosa. The meaning of work for women after maternity leave: a study with education professionals. Semin., Ciênc. Soc. Hum. [online]. 2018, vol.39, n.2, pp. 147-158. ISSN 1679-0383.

Not infrequently, the end of the period of maternity leave tends to trigger in women various types of psychic suffering. This, in turn, results from differentiated factors present in the life of each worker. This article presents partial results of a study that aimed to analyze the meaning of work for women after maternity leave. The case study was adopted as a research method. A total of 13 servants from the education area participated in the study, all of them linked to the public administration of a municipality in the state of Minas Gerais. The qualitative, semistructured interview was used as a collection tool, whose results were analyzed in light of the theoretical premises of work psychodynamics. The results indicated that in addition to teaching and learning, in their discourses they bring affectivity as a fundamental factor for the meaning in the work with children, but also recognize that the search for professionalization is of extreme relevance for the development of the activities towards the public.
