Welcome Baby, Welcome Back to Work

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 Welcome Baby, Welcome Back to Work Program comes in.  Classes, Conversations and Coaching will help you 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.

Welcome Baby, Welcome Back To Work. The transition back to work from Family Leave can be challenging, especially for mothers. They strive to balance involvement in the adult world of work with the biological and emotional changes that accompany a recent birth.  New moms and dads need and will benefit from support from family, friends, and their workplaces. One family friendly option for your company to offer is Peace at Home Parenting Solutions’ Welcome Baby and Back to Work digital program which includes expert facilitated support group discussions, brief recorded classes, and private coaching sessions. 

Parents gain easy access to expert information and much-needed support while on Family Leave with their new baby and as they return to work.  During live online support group conversations led by infant mental health expert JoAnn Robinson, PhD, parents ask questions and get solutions for their concerns about feeding, sleep, and their own feelings of overwhelm. Parents are often comforted to know they are not alone in their concerns. JoAnn often includes other Peace At Home early childhood experts to join her conversations and all of our experts are available for private coaching sessions.  Welcome Baby parents can watch brief recorded classes about topics that range from baby temperament and getting ready for childcare to concerns about how working will impact parents’ attachment with baby.  

Parent well-being is a key issue for Peace at Home Parenting Solutions and we are ready to offer evidence-based strategies, support and guidance to busy parents making this important transition.

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.

Click on a class title below for easy access to expert information and guidance from the Welcome Baby – Welcome Back to Work Flash Class Solutions library available 24/7. From eating, sleeping (or not), and just surviving to answering questions like, “Will work harm my relationship with my baby?” busy parents like you appreciate quick evidence-based solutions to everyday challenges as well as major concerns. Each class includes a video and handouts to watch and share. Take notes and come join the next Welcome Baby Conversation and get your questions answered! If you are not sure where to start or need help now – email us at and we will get you connected.

Get Ready for Baby & Enjoy the First Year

Challenges & Solutions

Our Solution Series Libraries are developed around a specific parenting challenge. Each Series includes a collection of hand-picked, easily digestible (15 min+/-) videos which unlock a key piece of the parenting puzzle.  Read our summary of this Series below then click on each lesson to access the class description, video, handouts, and information about our Expert(s). 

This class series covers the basics for parents from pregnancy through baby’s first year. You know you are about to have a life changing experience but you may not be able to imagine it. Parents who take time to learn about pregnancy and birth tend to have increased confidence during labor and delivery, improved birth outcomes and a higher likelihood of breastfeeding. Learning about caring for your baby and your body before birth will strengthen family well-being. 

The early weeks after birth can be confusing and exhausting while you and your baby learn how to manage feeding and sleeping. Learn about your baby’s early needs and development so you are ready to adapt to life with your newborn. Strategies that balance their needs with yours really make a difference.  Infants thrive when parents recognize temperament, how the baby learns, and how your early weeks together can be enhanced when you create rhythms and routines to care for the baby and yourself. 

This Peace At Home Parenting Solutions Library provides needed guidance to pregnant and postpartum parents of infants up to one year of age. Participants will be able to:

  • Recognize risks to pregnant women and newborn babies, especially for women of color
  • Identify action steps you can take to protect your health and your baby
  • Work together with your medical provider to help you build a healthy birth through informed consent and other strategies
  • Recognize and respond effectively to your newborn’s needs and cues
  • Identify and apply positive solutions to common concerns during baby’s first year
  • Recognize the importance of self-care to create balance and family well-being, especially when parents return to work
