Since the COVID-19 crisis began, call volume to Cleo’s team of global family guides has increased by 10x. Anxious expecting parents and stressed working families are looking for clear, evidence-based advice in an unprecedented situation that has shifted day by day (some days, hour by hour). Our expert team of OBGYNs, midwives, pediatric psychologists and career coaches have identified specific recommendations and evolving best practices as data is available, and we are tailoring our response to provide actionable support for Cleo’s member base of expecting mothers, their partners, and working families of young children.

But, we know more people need help and we’ve worked to open Cleo’s support to every expecting parent, partner, and working family that desperately need less articles and social media posts, and more expert advice and clear answers. Whether it’s an expecting mother trying to navigate the confusion and anxiety of a radically changing birth and post-partum plan, or a couple working from home while suddenly teaching from home as well, we have the right folks to help you.

Starting next week, Cleo will open our expert-led, live video Q&A sessions to every family, manager or HR leader who needs our help. Each session will be led by a Cleo expert, including our OBGYNs, midwives, developmental psychologists, and career coaches. The sessions will provide resources and insights and also include an open Q&A to ensure the most pressing questions are answered, so our community can learn from one another. After each Cleo Live session, we will share the recordings for those who miss our conversation. We’ll also share weekly tips on our social media channels.

Stay tuned for more news from us shortly on other ways we’ll extend our guidance and support for the broader community of expecting parents in particular, we know you need more help right now and we’ll soon have more ways to stay in touch with Team Cleo. Here is our upcoming schedule – feel free to share with a colleague, friend or family member.
