the tool kit
In 2015, Equality and Human Rights Commission research reported that 77% of women report negative, or possibly discriminatory experiences at work during pregnancy, maternity leave or on their return to work and more than 4 in 5 employers (84%) felt it was in the interests of their business to support pregnant women and those on maternity leave.
The bump & glide ‘tool kit’ is an outsourced company benefit providing key support to protect women’s physical & mental wellbeing during and after pregnancy - with antenatal preparation courses using hypnobirthing - whilst offering postnatal support and promoting effective communication with their employer throughout their maternity leave.
The more support a woman gets during pregnancy, and following the birth, the more chance you have of retaining her as a motivated and focused member of staff. By offering support early you give women the resilience and the support structure they need to tackle issues as they arise, rather than picking up the pieces once it’s too late.
Regardless of the type of pregnancy and birth, every woman deserves this standard level of care.
