Expectant Mothers Parking
Intent: To give Expectant Mothers parking privileges to expecting and returning mothers, four months before their due date to help reduce stress in the last few months of pregnancy. 

If spaces are available, a returning mom who has had caesarean surgery may request a space for one month after returning to work to help ease the mothers' transition back to work. BP Employees and contractors, who work at WL1 on a regular basis, are eligible for Expectant Mothers parking. 
Visitors to the BP complex can also be accommodated, if on site for more than one day. Same day permits will not be granted. (Our intent here is to accommodate ladies visiting, from other oil companies, or vendors/contractors, for extended meetings, conferences or projects). 

  1. A log will be kept of permitted expectant/returning moms by WL1 Security . Violators who park in a Expectant Mothers Parking slot without a valid Expectant Mothers parking permit, risk their supervisor being notified and/or towing. 
  2. Expectant Mothers parking is a privilege and is a way for BP to celebrate diversity by addressing work/life balance issues for working women. 
  3. Parking is interchangeable between buildings.

WestLake One
Contact WL1BadgingOffice@BP.com (ext.3-3400 ) at the beginning of your sixth month of pregnancy to obtain a parking space. 

They will ask for your due date.

You will be assigned a parking spot on Level 1 (accessed via BP Way middle garage entrance). This spot will be designated as yours with a numbered parking spot, and you are permitted to park in this designated spot, up to the expiration date, otherwise no exceptions nor extensions. 
If there is a medical need for parking privileges beyond this program, you will then be referred to your doctor to make determination whether a handicapped parking permit would better suit the situation. Once a State of Texas handicapped parking permit is issued, you will need to work with BP Medical to obtain approval before Security can issue access to the state-regulated handicapped parking area.
