Nupur Gurbaxani, Godrej Consumer Products

The maternity policy at Godrej helped me enjoy the most magical days of motherhood without any distractions. Thanks to the 6-month leave, I could focus completely on my child's well-being as well as recovering my own health. When I decided to resume work, policies like flexi time and work from home made the challenge of balancing career with motherhood far more manageable.

The first week after the delivery of the baby is critical and needs more involvement from the father. The paternity leave enabled me to switch off from work, help my wife and tend to my two-and-a-half-year-old daughter.
