"The week-by-week guidance and planning templates helped me stay organized and prepare my team, but the most meaningful part of the program was the community. Parentaly connected me with an invaluable community of new parents and provided a safe, coach-led environment where we could share our questions, concerns, problems, and strategies. This program is the perfect combination of professional and personal, and I feel confident in navigating the logistical and emotional journey of balancing my career while becoming a new parent."

Through our coaching sessions, 1:1 consultation and guided exercises via your Parentaly Dashboard, we help you create plans that will set you and your business up for success. And because there is no one busier than an expecting parent - we built this entire curriculum with speed and efficiency in mind. Use our templates, best practices and clear step by step guidance to get the work done via short self-guided planning sessions.
Plans you will create:
Coverage plan: How will your work be completed, and by whom? What training, documentation and goals do you need to create?
Communication and work tracking plan: How will the work being completed by others be tracked and/or communicated to you during your parental leave?
Re-onboarding plan: How will you successfully onboard back into what can feel like a totally new company when you return?
Re-engage with your cohort of 10 new parent peers as you navigate the return-to-work experience after parental leave.
You’ll attend three small group coaching sessions led by a Parentaly career coach over the course of your first three months back at work. These sessions will cover the most important topics related to returning to work and career advancement, and allow you to discuss roadblocks, tips and tricks with your cohort and coach.
Modules and topics include:
Career: Focus on your most critical priorities at work via vision exercises, Listening Tour and work planning
Productivity: Leverage routines, tools and mindsets that allow you to work smarter, not harder
Relationships: Build strong relationships at work and externally across all levels
Home life: Childcare, household responsibilities, relationships and personal priorities
This is a unique opportunity for transformational professional and personal growth.
Up-level your team,
engage in powerful professional development, and accelerate your career as a new parent.

No! We welcome any expecting employee, including non-birthing parents. That said, we find this program has the highest ROI for anyone planning to take 8+ consecutive weeks of leave.
What is the ideal timing for this program?
We recommend you start this program around 30 weeks pregnant. We will put you in a cohort that is timed appropriately to your expected parental leave start date.
What happens in a coaching session?
The Parentaly career coach will facilitate custom sessions based on specific needs and feedback from each participant, while integrating the Parentaly materials and frameworks to ensure optimal support. These sessions typically involve sharing personal experiences and challenges, receiving feedback from other participants and the coach, and more directive tactical recommendations and support.
What exactly is a career coach?
A career coach is a professional who focuses on asking questions, drawing conclusions out of your statements, and guiding you toward concrete and practical actions to achieve your goals. In a group coaching setting, their role is to moderate an impactful and productive conversation to address the stated objectives. Think of them as expert accountability partners who have worked with hundreds of similar individuals to map out clear plans of action!
