Maternity Coaching

Ensuring smooth transitions to and from work

Returning to work after a period of maternity leave can be extremely challenging in many ways.

The objectives of maternity coaching in the workplace are two-fold:

Ensure a smooth transition into maternity leave and back to work afterwards

Secure the retention of female talent through a supportive and structured process

Who is maternity coaching for?

Maternity Coaching is an exceptional tool for senior female leaders returning to work after an extended leave following the birth or adoption of their child.

Driving Sustainable Change and Supporting Diversity

Maternity coaching programmes can be used to build an internal sustainable coaching and mentorship programme, creating support through internal role models and coach mentors.

Research shows women returning to work who get a strong handle on managing their new schedules as both parent and women with careers have a renewed sense of career and often experience an upward trajectory in their career ladder, if guided and supported sufficiently during the initial challenging months.
