Weekly-themed ‘camera-on’ events and group chats moderated by a team of experts led by Francesca Steyn, Peppy’s Director of Fertility Services and Chair of the RCN (Royal College of Nurses) Fertility Nurses Forum. A safe place where your colleagues can share their experiences in an informed space.
Specialist mental wellbeing support
One in five women and one in eight men experience a mental health problem during the perinatal period. It’s why we offer one-to-one instant messaging with specialist mental wellbeing practitioners, so your people always have someone to talk to when they need it.
Live broadcast events
Each week we give Peppy users access to small-group events featuring expert practitioners and guest speakers talking on themes like ‘Preparing for Birth’. And for your workforce we offer a calendar of virtual live events for their training and education, on topics like ‘Supporting your return to work’. It’s all included in the Peppy plan.
“If the last 12 months have shown us anything, it’s that we all need human connection and, as a company, that we need to continue to be innovative and forward thinking. This is why we’ve chosen to work with Peppy.”
