Pathways to Parenthood

Strategic support for new parents at work and beyond

Many expecting and new parents in the workplace struggle as they combine professional responsibilities with new commitments at home. For companies, this can mean strained teams, a loss of talent, and, ultimately, a decrease in diversity. 

Pathways to Parenthood delivers expert, high-quality support for new parents, so they can thrive during this transition. It offers a strategic, proactive approach to preparing for pregnancy, maternity leave, and returning to work. The result is employees who are happier, more engaged, and more productive—a win for them, and for you.

 Global companies spend up to $47 billion recruiting and training new team members to replace women who leave after having a baby.*

 Coaching for parents can result in a 55% reduction in turnover.**

 75% of parents who received maternity coaching felt valued by their employer. ***
