Paternity and Shared Parental Leave


Since shared parental leave was introduced in 2015, less than 2% of parents have taken advantage of the initiative. To find out why there’s been such a low uptake we want to know what factors influence a partner’s decision to take parental leave. We’re looking for men who live in the UK who have at least one child or are expecting a child to complete our short survey.

Reducing anxiety of parents in the workplace

We are running a Real World Validation’ study to measure the impact of our digital midwife support using a scientifically validated protocol. The aim is to prove that our on-demand midwife support is a preventative aid for mental health issues, specifically anxiety, in pregnant women, first-time mothers and new parents. The results of the study are set to deepen our understanding of how parents should be supported in the workplace. If you’d like to be involved submit an enquiry below.
