At any given time, 1 in 3 employees are at some point on their pregnancy journey - either trying to conceive, currently pregnant, dealing with complications, or returning to work. Support from their employer can make a big difference, but it can be difficult for employers to know how to navigate statutory requirements for their employees at different stages and how best to help.
Based on extensive research, Tommy's Pregnancy at Work scheme provides a wealth of information for both line managers and pregnant employees to ensure that no matter what happens, their pregnancy will be supported with confidence.
As the UK’s leading baby charity, we provide detailed toolkits and midwife-led workshops for organisations of all sizes to use as part of their maternity offering. We are proud to work with a wide range of organisations that are helping to make the UK the safest place in the world to give birth.
1 in 4 will lose a baby during pregnancy or birth
Tommy's has the expertise to support parents through this painful experience. The support an employer can give to their employee can make a real difference. Our services are there to give HR and line managers the confidence to support pregnant employees when difficulties or a loss occurs.
“The thing I really like about Tommy’s Pregnancy at Work programme is that it is so comprehensive - lots of information. Also, it covers the more challenging topics like pregnancy loss which are often difficult for employees and managers to deal with. It’s good that we have a provider who deals with the everyday and the more difficult issues that can arise to do with pregnancy at work.” - A current Pregnancy at Work member
