BAY AREA BABY SQUAD
Helping businesses retain their talented employees.
Imagine your employees returning from parental leave focused and engaged rather than blurry eyed and exhausted. Bay Area Baby Squad can help your new parent employees transition back to work and get the sleep they need to focus and perform.
Research shows that families that have in-home support are less likely to develop postpartum depression or anxiety, yet modern parents are often separated from extended family and don’t have access to the help and advice they need. This lack of support impacts their mental health and their performance at work. A postpartum doula is a newborn expert who guides parents and helps them gain confidence as they step into their new role. They offer support for feeding, changing, soothing and other newborn tips and tricks.
Bay Area Baby Squad’s postpartum doulas can help new families during the day as well as the night. A day doula helps keep the new parent company, assists with light housekeeping while parent and child bond. A night doula allows parents to sleep and helps them start a nighttime routine with their baby.
This service is offered in the home at night and is a great way to transition families to a long-term sleeping routine that will serve them for years to come. It also helps new parents transition back to work. Studies suggest that new parents get an average of 5 hrs of sleep in a 24 hr period, not nearly enough to perform well.
A postpartum night doula can help them get the 7 consecutive hours of sleep needed to succeed at work and at home. As we all know, it is much easier to concentrate with a good night’s sleep.
Finally, Bay Area Baby Squad offers a “Welcome Baby” class on site for expectant parents that prepares soon to be moms and dads to be competent, confident caretakers for their new baby.

“As a husband turned new father I completely underestimated how hard it would be going back to the workforce after having our first child and Covid exasperated it. I was lucky enough to be referred to Mary B by a coworker and my partner and I hired her immediately. After working with Mary we learned how to be present both at home and at work and it has been life changing. I was close to leaving my corporate job in order to be more present at home but Mary made it all possible and we are so thankful!”
“I went back to work 14 weeks postpartum and quickly realized I was not the same person. I was not the same mother when I was home with my family and I was not the same employee when I was at work. I simply could not balance it until I met Mary B. I worked with Mary for just four short weeks and she changed my life. I now am the best mother AND the best employee. You can have it all, sometimes it just takes a little help and understanding!”
“As a full time working mother who loves her job I did not think it was even possible to go back to work after having my third child. I worked with Mary and she helped my family create a schedule that made it possible to parent how we wanted to parent while also going back to work and being successful in my career.”
"Prior to working with Mary B, our company was losing top talent every year because of the pressure of work/family balance. As a company, we worked with Mary to help us retain our talented employees and show them the support they needed. Our retention rate has grown since including Mary in our benefits package."
"Mary quickly became a critical member of our family with our newborn daughter. When she started she immediately soothed our daughter but also my husband and I who as first time parents were filled with questions and concerns. "Magic Mary" as we called her was dependable, loving and brimming with knowledge from her experience across dozens of newborns. She answered my questions throughout the early days when I was learning how to care for my newborn daughter. Her communal knowledge and experience was invaluable. Additionally, she delivered results! My daughter is a content, well rested, excellent sleeper thanks to Mary going above and beyond. We're grateful to have the opportunity to work with Mary and absolutely plan to use her again."
