I'm not in the health industry but work rotating shifts in a white-collar office environment. We work 6 shifts (2 mornings/2 arvos/2nights) followed by 3 days off - the first of which is normally spent sleeping after nightshift.
DH is also a shiftworker, he's part-time and works Fri/Sat/Sun afternoons & evenings at our local airport.
Really worried about childcare when the time comes to return to work - I'm the main wage-earner so I will be going back as soon as my mat leave finishes. And then we will have to get care to cover the times when we are both working Fri/Sat/Sun. I feel a bit and when I think about it!
