Nestlé’s Parent Support Spotlight on Leanna: Getting an Opportunity to Balance
by Leanna, Health and Welfare Benefits Team at Nestlé USA
I had my first child, Izzy, on January 6 — one of the first babies born after Nestlé launched our new Parent Support Policy. When I was first pregnant, I didn’t know that the policy was coming yet — when I found out, I was so excited. I knew as soon as I heard about the policy that I would want to take the full six months. I had a lot of good support- there are a lot of moms in my department and they all encouraged me to take full advantage and said I wouldn’t regret it. At that time, I couldn’t really understand and appreciate what it would be like, and they were right.
