The COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting working parents and their employers everywhere. MommaWork is here to help.
MommaWork’s goal is to alleviate the challenges facing working parents. We do this by empowering their employers through coaching and professional support services. Every member of our team feels a deep calling to deliver on this goal every day. It’s what drives us.
The disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has halted life as we know it. With school closures and most employees working from home, working parents are being challenged in ways like never before. They’re expected to navigate the nuances of remote working, while caring for their children and facilitating remote learning. Nevertheless, business must go on and employers are relying on their employees to deliver.
Our team of experts and coaches will focus on what we know best—working parents and their employers. We are gathering helpful resources here, in an effort to ease the burden on working parents, and for employers to minimize work disruption. We are here to support you with practical content, 1:1 consulting and team coaching. Reach out if you feel stuck. Let’s brainstorm a solution together. And when things go back to normal (because eventually they will), we’ll be here for the support of your working parents.
Because this situation is constantly changing, we urge you to visit the CDC website for the most up to date information.

Pretend. It’s what a lot of working parents are playing right now. Working parents are stressed at levels previously unimaginable. They are on the front lines of remote work, confined to their homes, and are working sunrise to sunset, while simultaneously caring for and educating their children without the aid of childcare. While the stress is obvious and expected, working parents are loath to admit to their employers that they feel defeated and need help. So pretend is what they play—with their children, with their co-workers and certainly with their bosses.
By proactively providing support today, businesses will position themselves to be stronger tomorrow. The fight is real. The need is real. And the time is ripe to do better for our working families.
