What is Gravida?

Gravida is a movement to support women through the largest shift in their lives since puberty. We offer a suite of services that uniquely target the root cause behind why new moms often struggle to return to work. Gravida’s approach has helped thousands of mothers heal and return to work stronger than before.

How does it work?

Employers set a quick call with Gravida and then list the employee benefit on their site. It’s free to list! When a qualifying new parent takes advantage of the benefit, Gravida is made available to them for a one-time licensing fee of $150. The employee chooses where their gift basket will be sent. Licenses are confidential to employers for 6 months following an employee signing up for Gravida with their business email address.

How do I keep costs under control?

Employers, feel free to set a cap on your account

so only an approved number of employees can register before you’re alerted. We’re confident after you see the effect of Gravida on one new parent, you’ll see how it pays for itself almost immediately.

Most new mothers report a desire to return to work. And yet less than half do. I’ve spent the last decade perfecting a method to help new moms return to work stronger than ever.
