The Knot Worldwide, best known for its wedding-planning website The Knot, will reimburse employees who need to travel to obtain abortion care.

Chief Executive Officer Timothy Chi announced the policy in a LinkedIn post Friday, saying the changes come in light of Roe v. Wade’s precarious standing as a legal precedent. The company is extending its parental leave policy to as many as 20 weeks of paid leave and will begin covering travel costs incurred by employees who need to travel more than a “reasonable distance” to seek reproductive healthcare, including abortion.
