They were discouraged from doing things, which might harm their chances of having children such as, stop smoking, stop slimming, and to do sport. Also contraception and abortion were made illegal.
It was the duty of mothers to bring up their children to believe in many things, for instance, to be loyal Nazis, they are encouraged to worship the Fuehrer and join the Hitler youth group.
At home women were encouraged to set an example by not going to work, being blonde, heavy hipped and athletic, in a full skirt and wearing flat heels and no make-up, and when cooking using up all the leftovers and cooking the food in a certain way and using certain foods. If they did not obey these rules the SA could always check up on them. They also had to dress and behave in certain ways; you can see that the impact of these rules had a huge effect on normal everyday life.
At first married women were encouraged to stay at home because it was believed that a woman's place was at home having children and caring for her family. When Germany rearmed the government faced a problem, because they needed the woman back that they had encouraged to stop working and stay at home. They solved this by abolishing marriage loans and introducing a compulsory duty year for all women entering the labour market.
Later when there was a labour shortage when Germany was rearming, the government needed more women to work. They solved this by abolishing marriage loans and introducing a compulsory duty year for all women entering the labour market. Even though women were back working the Nazis could not give up their aim for women to produce more children.
In appearance and behaviour the Nazis liked women to be blonde, heavy hipped and athletic in a full skirt and flat shoes and no make-up. Their behaviour was important as well, there was pressure to stop women smoking. If you were seen smoking you would be reminded of German women and workers.
So, unlike a man's role, which was that of a provider and defender, a women's role was a place in the house, having children and caring for her family.
