I have been a unit operator in packing and production at the Purina factory in Davenport, Iowa for five years now.

I had my first child, little Lila, on Halloween. We didn’t know we were having a girl — we waited to find out, which made it even more fun and sweet. Before she was born, I had talked with my manager and HR manager about prepping for leave. They explained the new policy which had just launched 2 months prior, and a leave specialist talked to me a number of times to explain all the options.

“Nestlé is there to support you as you support your family.”

I’ve been married for five years, and I’m now a father of a an almost-three-year old son and an eight-month old son. I always wanted to work with a company that understands work-life balance — one of the reasons I came to work for Nestlé is because when I was researching companies, I always saw that they take care of their employees. That was the company I wanted to work for. It’s great to feel like it’s not just you and a keyboard, Nestlé is there to support you as you support your family.

Nestle’s Parent Support Spotlight on Meghan: Finding a Culture of Care

by Meghan, Employee Wellness Specialist at Nestlé USA

In 2012, my husband and I began trying to get pregnant. After several unsuccessful years, we decided on In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) but didn’t know how we’d pay for it.
