Women At Work: Policies And Practices To Promote Healthy Moms

Topic Overview: Today, we’re facing increasing changes and national attention to promote the health and well-being of women returning to work after having children. In 2013, 69% of all mothers with children under age 18 were employed. Among mothers with infants, 57% are working. While new mothers have always been a focus of employee health, changing roles at work and at home beg the question, what tools do working mothers need? What worksite accommodations and policies should be integrated as part of a worksite wellness program to support new mothers?

This presentation will address health promotion programs at work that build healthy environments for keeping working mothers healthy on the job and to retain them as employees.  Discussion will include the top health concerns facing new mothers, including stress, weight management, physical activity and work-life issues. Learn what policies and best practices are encouraged to manage maternal leave, return to work and health promotion before and after childbirth.


  1. Recognize the renewed focus of women in the workplace.
  2. Explain policies and best practices for new mothers in the workplace.
  3. Explain major health concerns of new mothers in the workplace.
  4. Discuss ways to integrate these practices into your worksite wellness program.
