"The resources were fantastic and such a helpful guide through the planning process. Doing such thorough planning before leave made it easier to leave feeling comfortable, actually unplug, and come back with clear expectations.”

What is the cost of the Parentaly program, and do I have to pay for it?

All Parentaly programming is offered as an employee benefit, which means your employer covers 100% of the cost! Employees who enroll will be taking advantage of a premium career coaching program at no cost to them.

Is this program made only for (pregnant) women?

No! The program is designed for any expecting employee, including non-birthing parents! Hundreds of alum graduating from the program are new fathers who have found it invaluable in helping them prepare for their leave and think about their career goals moving forward.

What is the ideal timing to start the Parentaly program?

To get the full benefit of the program, we recommend starting at least 10 weeks before your leave begins, but we accept sign-ups at any point in the parental leave journey, including when you’re returning to work.

I haven't been coached before. What exactly is a career coach?

A career coach is trained to ask questions about you and your work, use that information to guide you toward concrete actions to achieve your goals, and hold you accountable to your plan. 

What happens in a career coaching session?

Your Parentaly career coach will customize your sessions to your specific needs, and will share frameworks and materials to support those needs. These sessions typically involve sharing personal experiences and challenges, and receiving feedback and tactical recommendations.
