WE WORK WITH YOU TO SUPPORT YOUR EMPLOYEES THROUGH PREGNANCY AND PARENTHOOD
WHY IS PREGNANCY + CHILDBIRTH EDUCATION RELEVANT TO YOUR BUSINESS?
A pregnancy announcement within your workplace can be both an exciting and challenging time.
But did you know that approximately 41% of Women will leave the workforce permanently within 3 months of having a baby?
There are many factors that contribute to this including women feeling unsupported by their employer or overwhelmed with the demands of juggling parenthood and a career.
Birth Beat offers a way to open a dialogue with your employees at the start of their pregnancy journey. It is a practical way to show them how much you value them and this impending life-changing event.
OVER 300,000 BABIES ARE BORN EACH YEAR IN AUSTRALIA
10% OF YOUR STAFF ANNUALLY
Many Mums and Dads are anxious about how pregnancy, birth and the newborn phase will impact them personally and professionally. This can lead to a significant loss of productivity and an increase in leave time required for staff to attend appointments and traditional face-to-face hospital childbirth classes.
Women commonly work later in pregnancy than they have in generations past. The demands of appointments, travel for these appointments and preparation for maternity leave increases. Getting to traditional evening or weekend prenatal classes can be very challenging in the corporate setting. As a result, many women and/or their birth support partner opt to not undertake any prenatal education.
A lack of education can lead to:
- Increased rates of maternal and perinatal depression and anxiety
- Increased sick leave
- Becoming withdrawn from group environments
- Feeling time poor with unmanageable workloads and a sense of being unable to prepare for birth
Birth Beat is revolutionising the way parents prepare for birth while juggling work/life balance. Most importantly, your staff will feel valued by the organisation at this important time and the likelihood of them returning to their role will be increased.
Offering simple support and education during this massive life change will ultimately let your staff succeed at work
Our Birth Beat corporate offering also includes options for;
- Live Lunch and Learns held in your workplace
- High level reporting for HR teams to indicate uptake and engagement with the program
- Customised marketing and communication strategies
- Option to customise the online learning platform for your organisation
Many organisations will spend the equivalent of a Birth beat package in flowers and gifts. Why not give your staff a gift that shows your support, helping them prepare for this new phase of their lives? It’s a valuable gift, both for your employees and your organisation.
