It is not just new parents that struggle with the demands of career and care. There are many phases of transition as a parent. New schools, moving suburbs, divorce and certainly adolescence are times of enormous change within a family. Coaching can ensure these times are a positive challenge that can bring a fresh start and a newfound sense of calm amongst the chaos. 

DID YOU KNOW?

GOOD FOR BUSINESS & GREAT FOR FAMILIES

It is Good for Mothers

  • When partners take parental leave, mothers are healthier and less likely to get postnatal depression.

  • Paid parental leave has been found to have positive effects on Australian women's health, particularly for women in managerial positions.

  • Women who undertake maternity transition coaching felt more confident when returning to work, were able to reflect on their career goals and redefine their boundaries.

 

It is Good for Fathers / Partners

  • Involvement of the father or partner early in childhood is important for emotional, cognitive and social wellbeing.

  • Equal parental leave can help level the playing field so both men and women can succeed at home and work.

  • Fathers experience less stress and increased confidence when they have their own special time with their newborns.

 

It is Good for Children

  • The first years of life are critical for children and maternal leave in the first year have been shown to have a significant impact on the formation of learning skills, self-esteem and emotional security.

  • Strong emotional attachment between a mother and her baby may help prevent diseases, boost immunity, and enhance a child’s intelligence.

  • A child’s physical and mental development is significantly boosted when his dad has played with him from the start.

  • Strong father-child bonds can help counter issues such as depression later on in life.

  • Children who experienced close interactions with their fathers from an early age tend to be more successful academically, have better relationships with their peers and be less likely to get involved with crime or abuse drugs and alcohol.
