We're here for life’s big journeys

Fertility, early parenthood and menopause support

When it comes to life’s big journeys – planning a family, becoming a new parent or going through the menopause – it can be hard to know who to turn to for advice and support. Information can be confusing and people often struggle with their experiences, at home and at work.

We're working together with digital-health app Peppy to give employees the power to find their way more confidently through life’s most personal challenges.

Why investing in fertility, early parenthood and menopause support matters

Major events like menopause can have a huge effect on a person’s life, at home and at work. The experiences of fertility or infertility, as well as early parenthood, can be all-consuming – psychologically and physically. 

It’s important that employees can access information they can trust as well as practical and emotional support from experts when they need it. 



63% of women say symptoms negatively affect their work.1


Early parenthood

Lack of sleep has serious physical, mental and emotional impact, with obvious knock-on effects at work. 



90% of men and women experiencing fertility challenges in the UK say it has left them feeling depressed.
