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 Work-Life 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 e-mail 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)

NOTE: If you are e-mailing on behalf of the parent, please notify the parent that you are providing the Work-Life Program with this information.
