DID YOU KNOW?

Over 375,000 Canadian women take
maternity leave every year & less than 1% of Maturn survey respondents said they felt confident returning back to work.

“It’s jarring to go from working every day in an office, to working at home on raising a child and then to jump right back into a 9-5 routine. Support in planning for those transitions would be immensely helpful.”

“I wish I knew it would be hard to come back, you’re a year behind in changes, upgrades…everything. Work as you knew it changed and you have changed too. ”

“Everyone expects you to just be the same when you return and just pick up easily. It is not the same as returning from vacation. I didn’t realize that it would be so emotionally difficult.”

Maternity leave isn’t a vacation — it’s a full-time job. That means when women return to their roles at work, they’re caught in between a crucial identity shift — both personally and professionally — that expects them to pick up right where they left off.

Unrealistic expectations like this are damaging in the long run to both mothers and their employers. And they set us all up for failure.

Because without the right resources to help both women and their companies prepare for these challenging life transitions, it’s not uncommon to see thousands of those women burn out quickly, worry about advocating for their new needs or get trapped in a cycle of continuously being passed over for promotions after maternity leave is over.

Maturn was created because we believe that women can be even *more* valuable to their employers when they return to work.

And it starts with receiving the right support from the moment they announce their leave and far beyond that first day back in the office.

SO, HOW DO WE GET THERE?

If birthing and non-birthing mothers received access to specialized tools, a dedicated community and external support systems to transition back to work with ease — lasting, systemic change would be the natural result.

COMPANIES WILL NOTICE:

Increase retention and promotion of female employees

Returning mothers would confidently bring a new skill set and perspective to the table

An increase in top female applicants, seeking out organizations who support their long term career and personal goals

The prevalent gender gap would start becoming narrower and narrower

And for those 375,000 women and counting, work would feel more like:

An opportunity to continue their career trajectory, uninterrupted

A promotion, pay raise and shift into a senior position would be possible

A safe space to advocate for their goals, needs and shift in lifestyle without fear

Their work-life transition would be less of a juggle, and more well-managed

Maturn was created for organizations and individuals who want to walk down a better path and invest in mothers, together.

It’s your turn. Start now.
