Yichud with two women, one of whom’s husband is in town

I am a home care therapist. I go to homes and do therapy with children. Is there a problem of Yichud where the mother is home and the husband is learning in a nearby kollel, but there is also a cleaning lady at the house while I am there?

Answer

Yichud is permitted with a woman in her own home if her husband is in town, and even more so if another woman is present.

וע”ש בבינת אדם שבאשה אחת אף שבעלה בעיר, קצת יש לחוש לדעת רש”י שאוסר
