Different experts will help to tackle other problems like pregnancy and early childhood; parents need help with tracking the milestones around development, breastfeeding, nutrition, growth, etc. This is where the inputs from Healthcare Experts will be most valued. As the child grows older, the parents need the support and advice of Early Childhood Educators in understanding the best practices they can adopt to ensure their child’s cognitive, mental, and emotional milestones are met.
The Parents who Inspire will bring in the expertise to understand the challenges that parents in their workplace or communities are talking about and need help with. The Corporate Leaders constitute Top HR, Diversity, and Inclusion Initiative Leaders that bring in the understanding of challenges that parents are facing at work. These challenges can look like moms joining back their jobs, how parents incorporate their parenthood with their jobs, and more.
