Your New Parent Packet

Balancing work with the arrival of a new child can be difficult. To help make the transition a little easier, Yale’s WorkLife Program offers current Yale faculty, staff, students and postdocs who adopt or give birth a New Parent Packet, which contains information to ease the daily challenge of balancing work and family life.

The packet includes a gift for the child and information for parents about the Yale Babysitting Service, finding child care, back-up child care, and the dependent-care spending account for working parents.

To request a New Parent Packet, please email the following to

Parent name
Yale affiliation (Faculty, M&P, C&T, S&M, Student, Postdoc)
Home address
Child’s date of birth or expected date of birth (for size appropriate gift)

If you are emailing on behalf of the parent, please notify the parent that you are providing the WorkLife Program with this information.
