Welcome to Unilever’s portal for parents-to-be, new mums and dads on maternity or paternity leave, and working parents.

 

We’ve created it to help you approach your leave, and your new life as a working parent, in a really positive and manageable way. There are three tailored sections:

 

A pre-leave section – packed with advice on announcing your news, planning for your leave and making a smooth handover.

 

An on leave section – full of tips on staying in touch and preparing for your return to work.

 

A return to work section – with plenty of guidance on achieving the right balance, building your confidence and planning

for your future career.

 

Each section also includes handy checklists and toolkits to help you do exactly what you need to, when you need to,

along with videos of colleagues sharing their own experiences. You can even sign up for email prompts that remind you

what to do at each stage.

 

We’ve also provided resources and information that are specific to the country you’re based in.

 

And if your baby has arrived and you feel like sharing the good news, you can upload photos to our Celebrate page!

 

In this portal you can also find useful guidance on breastfeeding, access it here and in the toolkit sections.
