Family at home. Three generations Asian

When you've got a loved one expecting a baby, you know how much research they're doing about what kind of gear to buy and what kind of classes to take. And because this is uncharted territory, and they want to do right by this beautiful being they're bringing into the world, they buy and do all the things.


What many new parents come to find is that after the baby arrives, those checklists leave out some pretty big things


After all, these lists are focused almost exclusively on the baby’s needs -- so where does that leave the parents? Their jobs, their relationship, their overall well being?


At Soutiens, this is our area of expertise. 


We firmly believe that parents can have meaningful careers, and that with the right supports and systems in place, that everyone wins when new parents thrive in the workplace. We have years of experience working with new parents and progressive employers, and we want to see your loved ones succeed.


Introducing The Return Plan: a comprehensive, self-paced online program to prepare new parents for parental leave.  Divided into easy-to-understand modules, topics include:


  • Exploring and understanding parental leave policies and benefits

  • Communicating with work managers and teams - before, during, and after leave

  • Making the most of the time at home focusing on what matters most

  • Navigating sensitive conversations with partners before baby arrives (and before they're both sleep-deprived)

  • Learning how they can tap into the community to find the support they need

  • Planning for self-care, and why it really matters

  • Creating a thoughtful return to work plan that meets the family’s needs and minimizes stress


Like those checklists that served them well in stocking up baby’s nursery, The Return Plan gives your loved one concrete, actionable tasks to feel empowered in entering this new stage of their professional life. The program also includes a downloadable workbook to keep thoughts organized and share plans with family and colleagues.


For $149, your loved one will get unlimited access to The Return Plan's online course -- and the peace of mind that comes from a thoughtful plan and Soutiens’ experience supporting countless parents in this journey. 

Once you purchase The Return Plan, we'll email you instructions on how your loved one can access the course and a printable gift certificate you can wrap up with a bow!

We're custom-creating this for you, so please allow up to 48 hours to receive your email.
