Returning to work
Expert coaching, guidance and education for parental leave employees
Working towards a happy and healthy work/home life balance
From pregnancy to parenthood, its an exciting time but it can also be overwhelming and worrying. It’s a time of significant change and there are practical, emotional and physical demands to deal with, now and in the future.
The tension and anxiety that many people at work experience when facing parental leave is a real challenge:
• How do I deal with my stress and all that I’m already juggling?
• How can I best navigate my career options?
• How am I going to find a manageable work/home life balance?
• What are my options for birthing and parenting the way I want to?
Birthready will help support you in your workplace while pregnant and later in your return to work. We coach manager’s and employees to find positive workable solutions, bridge the gaps, reduce fears, boost your internal resources and skills, and help bring this personal health and wellbeing back to work.
The overarching feedback we get from our Birthready clients is:
• How quickly they bounce back to feeling good
• How their anxiety is reduced and confidence is boosted
• They feel more in control and empowered in their decisions
• How resourced and ready they feel managing day-to-day demands
• How better planned and prepared they feel for birth and parenting

Sharing birth and life stories of parenthood
Birthready helps facitliate an evening of open discussion and peer sharing and learning for expectant and new parents, (women and men). In a friendly environment we support each other to share our birth and life stories, questions, ideas, wisdom and resources. We troubleshoot our challenges by hearing each others perspecives and explore ways to manage our challenges. This is a facilitated process that uses group discussion, movies, handouts, hands on practices and what ever comes up in the group to explore how we can be happier, healthier human beings during the pregnancy to early parenting time.
