Working persons to successful working parents

Parental leave transitions affect more than just working parents. In fact, the stress from navigating new life challenges isn’t just tiresome on mom and dad –– it’s also detrimental to child development.

By partnering with working parents’ employers, Inceptive supports families before, during, and beyond parental leave. 

It’s our hope that with access to the right resources and experts, parents can thrive throughout the workday –– and then go home to provide the love, support, and attention their children need.

Our approach

When parents are overwhelmed, they turn to family, friends, or the internet for advice. And while there’s no shortage of opinions available, there’s little busy moms and dads can do to ensure they’re getting the best information possible.

Inceptive aims to make trustworthy resources more accessible for families by bringing research-backed tools to them, right at their place of work. We set up working parents for success by partnering with their employers to build an at-work support system that helps them and their children thrive.

Judgement-free open forum

Our experts are available to answer questions big and small, whether they pertain to curiosities or a crisis.

Every parent wants the best for their child, but most of them aren’t experts and rely on their family, friends and (increasingly) the web for advice. Some of this advice, especially online, is irrelevant, biased or simply incorrect; and parents who are already strapped for time, find it challenging to access reliable, trustworthy resources.
