At Work Life Mother, we don’t just coach women on maternity leave. We coach anyone entering parenthood.


We facilitate transitions into paternity, adoption and surrogacy leave – as well as the transitions back into work.


The result of our coaching? Confident and satisfied returners capable of delivering high-quality work without sacrificing wellbeing.

Group Coaching​

Inspire an open and inclusive culture that benefits everyone.

Our collaborative coaching sessions can be delivered to a full cohort in one go, or as drop-in sessions for up to 12 employees. We adopt an approach that fits your requirements and desired outcomes.


Our group coaching introduces your employees to the key stages of parental leave with 3 extensive workshops. These are:

Preparing for parental leave: Packed with practical steps and advice, so your parental leavers know exactly what to do moving forward


Empowered returns: Explores how returning employees can create empowered and successful returns with ease


Future focus: Using our signature framework, we draw your returners’ attention to the future of their career, helping them apply the groundwork to achieve their future goals and ambitions

Why group coaching?

Group coaching creates a safe and collaborative space for people to share their lived experiences, leading to insightful discussions around parenting and fresh solutions. A group approach inspires the growth of a culture built on understanding and empathy.
