We are reimagining working parenthood
Because we understand it takes a Villyge
We envision a world where…
Our Origin Story
Our Founder and CEO, Debi Yadegari, is a working mother of five and former investment banking lawyer. She walked away from Wall Street for two reasons: her employer did not support working parents, and her workplace was not equipped to support her breastfeeding goals. Recognizing her experience was not uncommon—companies lose 43% of new moms and 33% of new dads every year—she decided it was time for change. Employers and employees were both losing out and she knew that was a problem she wanted to solve. Her experience was the catalyst for reimagining the future of working parent support today.
We are the leader in working parent support.
Because we understand that a change in corporate culture can be the most important step to supporting working parents, we do much more than just provide 1:1 employee support. We offer a holistic 360-degree approach to supporting working parents that includes developmental programs and comprehensive policy buildouts for the employer. We are the only provider of workplace support to have an in-house team of lawyers who manage leadership training and specialize in lactation accommodation law to reduce litigation risk. Our expertise is why our clients maintain the industry’s highest retention rate of 96% post-baby and how our average client saves over $4.5 million annually.
