Supporting Businesses to Enable their Working Mothers to Thrive at Home and at Work
A one of a kind, innovative maternity package that not only benefits, supports and nurtures mothers in the workplace and in motherhood, but also enables businesses to enhance their reputation as a progressive, forward thinking employer whilst also reaping economic advantages.
What are the business benefits of supporting the Mother?
Retain great employees
Attract the best talent
Reduce recruitment & training costs
Create a diverse workforce
Increase employee loyalty & commitment
Have the reputation as an excellent employer
Become an employer of choice.
Maternity x Wellbeing’s corporate objective is to enable businesses to support their mother workforce to thrive at work and at home by helping them embed a practical and cost effective maternity program, which will meet all the birth, motherhood and return to work needs of their female employees, creating a balanced and inclusive workforce, and in turn, impacting positively on their bottom line.
Being a culture that is inclusive of working mothers represents a significant challenge for companies today - 56% of working mothers say finding work-life balance is “very” difficult and only 42% of women believe that it is possible to meet their work/care needs and the needs of their children, resulting in a stressed out, under-performing workforce.
With 64% of SME employers not expecting their mothers to return to work, it’s evident supporting the wellbeing of the mother workforce is vital for business success.
How Maternity x Wellbeing enables you to support your mother workforce and your business.
Maria, the founder of Maternity X Wellbeing, has supported hundreds of women through birth, motherhood and reintegration into the workplace and she knows what they want and need from this journey in order to feel supported and happy as a mother and to feel engaged and fulfilled as an employee. She also knows what their employers can do to stand behind them and give them the support they need to have a good balance between work and family life and reach their highest potential - the key to business success.

Who is Maria Banobre?

Before falling pregnant, she was a successful Empowerment Coach for Women and she’d also had a long career as a Television Director spanning over a decade.

Maria’s insights have been featured in Stylist magazine, The Debrief, Women’s Health Magazine and The Headspace Podcast.
Maria’s qualifications include:
