Award-winning Support Groups for your Staff
Returning to work after maternity leave often feels challenging and overwhelming.
We know that keeping experienced staff and retaining talent within an organisation is a major issue for most businesses, however, research shows fewer than 1 in 5 women feel confident returning to work after maternity leave.
Our Mummy Buddy Groups ensure your staff feel supported, connected and committed to your organisation during this time.
On average it costs over £100k to replace a senior member of staff.
Nationally, 85% of women who worked full time before having a baby either don’t return to work or return part time.

How can we help?
Here at Mummy Buddy we focus on Mums - we know how isolating and overwhelming motherhood can be. Connecting with other like-minded mums at a similar stage can be tricky, especially during a global pandemic and we are here to help.
Our specially curated Award-Winning Buddy Groups are small groups of mums or mums-to-be at a similar stage in their motherhood journey. Your own WhatsApp group and weekly hot topics provide a supportive platform for you to share ideas, offer friendly support and meet up (when it's safe to do so). providing indepencance - know their employer cares
"Thanks so much for all you are doing - we have received so much positive feedback from the mums on the groups and our CEO is really chuffed"
