FAQs: Employee Support for Early Parenthood

Should organisations have an early parenthood policy in the workplace?

Organisations should have an early parenthood policy in the workplace to provide clear guidelines and support for employees who have those responsibilities. A childcare policy ensures consistency and fairness in how the organisation addresses childcare-related issues. For an example template of a robust childcare policy, feel free to leverage our early parenthood policy template under our early parenthood resources.

What are ways that an employer can help with early parenthood?

Becoming a parent is fraught with additional responsibilities, pressures...

Becoming a parent is fraught with additional responsibilities, pressures, and emotions. Providing parenthood help in the workplace is essential. Your employees might not be prepared for what’s about to hit them—financially, physically, or emotionally, and the changes they experience will likely impact their working day, energy levels, and scheduling.

As an employer, you can make a significant difference to new parent employees, limiting or reducing the stress they bring to the workplace each day.

Finding ways to support your staff through exhaustion, anxiety, and scheduling requires thought and understanding. Offering flexibility, emotional support, communication, and viable solutions can mean the difference between keeping valuable workers on the team or losing them.

Parental leave policies: Implement generous parental leave policies that go beyond the legal requirements. Offering paid parental leave allows employees to take time off to care for their newborns or newly adopted children without worrying about their job security or financial stability.

Lactation support: Provide designated lactation rooms or private spaces for nursing mothers to express breast milk. Additionally, support policies that allow mothers to take breaks for breastfeeding or pumping throughout the workday.

Flexible work arrangements: employees may need to change on an informal basis the method of their working. Both formal and informal arrangements should be documented in writing so expectations are managed.

Personalised-Experts support: Newborn support can be either residential (i.e. provided by residential maternity nurses, night nannies, doulas or sleep consultants) or virtual support, provided by the same experts, but via virtual video consultations or chat / email support.

Either form of support helps expecting parents prepare for the birth and the arrival of a new baby or it addresses a variety of post-natal topics such as sleep, lactation, weaning, tantrums, separation anxiety. And similarly, offering support for parents returning to work through career coaching can significantly improve the experience for both parents. It will also result in attracting more women back to workplaces.
