Many companies are starting to implement a compassionate leave policy for employees that have experienced miscarriages, stillbirths, or failed adoption/surrogacy attempts.

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week, which brings much-needed attention to an extremely important yet still not-often-talked-about topic. While fertility and family building benefits have gained recognition as a necessary part of a company’s benefit plans, there is still much more employers can do to help their employees throughout every stage of their family building journey. Adoption and surrogacy assistance, mental health benefits, and pregnancy loss leave policies are just a few components that are not often considered but can make a significant difference in the health and wellbeing of employees and their families.
