The article focuses on maternity coaching, a coaching approach intended to prevent mothers from resigning from their jobs after returning from maternity leave. The length and style of maternity coaching varies between providers, but it usually takes the form of a series of face-to-face individual coaching sessions, which are delivered during pregnancy, maternity leave and upon return to work. The intention is to support women at these times and help companies stem attrition.
