Help your clients engage and support working parents.

Employers are looking to their brokers to help them attract and retain working moms. New Moms’ Healthy Returns offers an innovative and comprehensive solution to help employers support new moms as they transition back-to-work.


Women and mothers are a crucial and growing segment of the employed population.  While only 2% of women plan to leave the workforce to focus on family,  43% of new moms actually do leave the workforce within three months of childbirth.  Employers need ways to support new moms and help them stay in the workforce.

New Moms’ Healthy Returns, created through a partnership between Medela and Mamava, is an easy-to-offer, customizable bundle of benefits for new mothers.  Employees whose companies provide breastfeeding support consistently report improved morale, better satisfaction with their jobs, and higher productivity.  As a trusted partner to your clients, you can offer this best-in-class, personalized solution to make it easier for moms to successfully come back to work.
