Aim: To describe occupational gaps and the relation to perceived life satisfaction among working women with preschool children. Method: The essay was designed as a quantitative survey study, inspired by OGQ and LiSat-11 and was answered by 41 participants. The answers were statistical analysed and presented with descriptive statistics in tables and descriptive text. Results: Occupational gaps were primarily described in the areas of leisure activity (41%) and activity in daily life (ADL) (29%). The most common type of occupational gap was "do not, but want to do" (69%). There was a moderate correlation between the increased number of occupational gaps and decreased life satisfaction (r = -0.58; p <0:01). Conclusion: The essays results showed that working women with preschool children had a greater number of occupational gaps than the general population and that there was a correlation between a higher number of occupational gaps and decreased life satisfaction in the study group. This essay indicates that women may be in need of occupational therapy to identify priority objectives and support the strategy management in the process of adaptation to their own lives to reduce their occupational gaps and increase their life satisfaction.
