Challenges & Solutions
Having a baby is an exciting time in your life. Whether this is your first or third, each arrival brings great joy and new challenges. When you add the transition out to Family Leave and then back to work, plus an ever-changing “new normal,” you deserve an army of support. That’s where the CVS Welcome Baby, Welcome Back to Work Program comes in. Classes, Conversations and Coaching will help you and your peer colleagues more easily master new beginnings for you and your baby.
First Classes, our Welcome Baby Solution Series Library gives you 24/7 access to specific parenting challenges. Each Flash Class includes an easily digestible (15 min+/-) Video and Handouts that unlock a key piece of the parenting puzzle. Click on any title below and watch the video as often as you would like and share the handouts with your caregiving partner.
Next are Conversations, led by Peace at Home Parenting experts. Come together with your CVS Colleagues to learn, share and gain support. If you miss a conversation, the recording and handouts will be posted below and in your course catalog. In 2022, we will be meeting monthly, and links to register will be included here as well as on your live calendar. Don’t worry – we will send you a reminder each month too! Here are the Q1 Conversations scheduled:
Create a Strong Foundation with Baby – January 27, 2022 12 pm EST
Baby Blues – February 24, 2022 12pm EST
Make Room for Yourself Before and After the Birth – March 24, 2022 12 pm EST
Finally, when you need a little coaching, we have options. First ask a question on our private, expert-monitored Facebook page. You’ll get answers from our team and Peace at Parents just like you. Next, you can come to our Monthly Q&A Office Hours with founder Ruth Freeman. You can get on-the-spot answers.

You can schedule a 1:1 Coaching Session with our experts for an additional fee. Learn more about private coaching below and book a session today.
Birthing mothers strive to balance involvement in the world of work with the biological and emotional changes that accompany a recent birth. Parent involvement with a baby’s total care can be immensely rewarding as well as exhausting, and relinquishing some of that care to others is often anxiety-provoking.
