Corporate Paternity Coaching
Becoming a father is a momentous event in a man's life and one to be celebrated! Recognition of the fact that life will change when 'baby makes three' is as beneficial for the employer as it is the employee.
Benefits for Employees
Benefits for Employers
This programme consists of three sessions, one during pregnancy and two after the baby is born. The programme is flexible in that the sessions can be booked to suit the needs of both the employee and the employer.
Session 1 - Preparing for Parenthood
This session is most useful in the early part of the pregnancy. It gives the opportunity to think about all the practicalities around having a pregnant partner and what might need to change as a result of having a baby on the way. It encourages the client to think about how involved he'd like to be in the pregnancy and birth and how he can achieve this whilst remaining professional in the workplace. By exploring his sub-personalities this session will encourage an increase in self awareness for the prospective father, giving him the tools to remain professional at work whilst being supportive at home. It touches on paternity leave and how best he could use it to maximise the benefit.
Session 2 - Birth Debrief
The second session is during the first two months following the birth, when everything can seem a bit overwhelming and is offered to the client and his partner together.
Everyone hopes the birth will be a positive experience but sometimes it turns out to be completely different to what either parent was expecting. Whether it be positive or negative, it is a momentous event and new parents like to talk about it!
It is well evidenced that birth partners can be as affected by the birth as the woman herself and to have the opportunity to talk it through and understand what happened and why, will secure their emotional recovery and reduce the likelihood of birth related mental health issues.
