LEGO 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 LEGO 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 LEGO 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 quarterly, 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 quarter too! Here is the Q1 Conversation scheduled:

Welcome Baby: Make Room for Yourself Before and After Birth– February 23, 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 and Office Hours with founder Ruth Freeman.

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. 

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!

Work-Life Balance: The Impossible Dream? (YUM! Brands)

June 14, 2021 12:00 pm EDT/EST

Challenges & Solutions

Previously hosted live class exclusively for YUM! Brands.  Access the recording and handouts by clicking on the Course Lesson below.

Many working parents struggle to figure out a healthy work life blend. We recognize there shouldn’t have to be a choice between work and caring for your family. The McKinsey Report* tells us that parents, “…are facing the choice between falling short of pre-pandemic expectations that may now be unrealistic,
or pushing themselves to keep up an unsustainable pace.” *

We recognize that a work-life blend right now can seem impossible. Technology makes you accessible 24/7 and fear about job loss might drive you to work longer hours. Compounding stress from the never-ending workday can harm family life, health and overall happiness.

This interactive online workshop will provide you with the opportunity to consider the current research related to work-life blend and identify realistic approaches to address your most important challenges.
Participants in this session will recognize that you can’t “do it all” and be able to:
– Identify approaches to communicate with your supervisor on structural changes to work that will support better work-life blend
– Apply strategies that manage boundaries and support recovery
– Recognize the importance of instrumental and emotional social support and plan action steps to develop these resources.
