What Clients Say About Us
Stressed Mamas is an invaluable resource for me as a single parent and as a dedicated professional who spends an incredible amount of time working and away from home. They keep my day to day home life organized and manageable. Anytime I work with them, I feel relaxed and at peace with the situation at home. I owe a great deal of my success to their dedicated and passionate service.

I've been using the service for over a year and it is great. I heard about it on the radio and immediately called, checked them on Facebook. I highly recommend. Our Helper takes care of all the kids needs, and cleans, helps with house chores like cooking, laundry, kids homework, driving kids to pm activities, etc. Easy way to pay. Very pleased.
-Clients from 2014-2017
Rachel, the Owner, helped find me a Nanny years ago and she has been with us since. I don't know how our family could get by without her. She helps out with anything I need in regards to children or home. Our Nanny potty trained, and sleep trained 2 of my children! Rachel has always been there for me as far as admin support and I love that feature of this business. They are honest, caring individuals and I highly recommend this service.
-Current clients since 2018
Around 2017 my family relocated to the Fresno area for my job. We had no clue where to go to find childcare for our daughter and the HR department at my work had recommended we contact Stressed Mamas to find a Nanny. 4 years later writing this review for the agency, let me tell you we are very fortunate we did. Our Nanny has been by our side and a part of this family since day one of moving here. We've now expanded our family to 2 children knowing we have a great Nanny to support our family. Potty training, flash cards, nature walks, meals, sanitization, she does it all and I could go on, our kids are smart as whips and always ahead of the game. We're so thankful for our Nanny and the agency. Rachel always helps out with any situations that come up like back-up care, taxes, all the business side of things. It's a very well-rounded experience using this agency and we can't say enough fantastic things.
Not without mentioning, my wife was very stressed re-locating here. Our Nanny offered to stay late at night so she could attend yoga classes, mixers, etc to make friends. It was quite touching to experience not only this personal care and attention to my children, but my wife's well being as well.

Simply said, finding good, quality childcare is really hard. After having countless Nannies not show up, cancel, leave us hanging at the last minute, I knew we had to make a change. A girlfriend of mine has a Nanny from Stressed Mamas who is amazing! My friend has nothing but great things to say about her Nanny so I had to call and find out more information. I utilized Rachel's services in finding my family a Nanny 6 months ago and it was a game-changer for me and my kids. Our Nanny is reliable, friendly, and really goes above and beyond for my kids. When my regular Nanny needs time off, Rachel sends me backup childcare and I truly just love Stressed Mamas. It really has taken a lot of stressful situations I dealt with as a Mother and turned them into peaceful bliss for me and the kids. Our household runs very smoothly now and really, I have Rachel and the Stressed Mamas team to thank. Even after the kids are grown, I will continue to utilize this business for date night coverage, and household help. They're amazing!

I heard about this service from some Moms in a playdate and immediately had to call. After gathering the info from Rachel, I spoke to my husband and he agreed we could hire a Mothers Helper 3 days a week, for 3 hours. Those 9 hours per week that we have help for our 2 children- is life changing. If it's been a rough night, I'll leave the kids with her and they love it! Someone other than Mom to interact and play with, they're in heaven! Sometimes I go for a run, to Target ALONE!, or to brunch or lunch by myself. Sometimes I take the kids out and she will stay home and tidy my house, run laundry, fold clothes, organize our pantry, etc. I couldn't be happier with Stressed Mamas. In using them for 2 years now, they've only had to cancel one day on me, and gave me a week notice of this happening. They also offered back-up childcare for the day, which we didn't need but was much appreciated. I'm very grateful this service exists. Rachel and the team are truly great.

My family utilizes Stressed Mamas for their Drop-In services. I'm a SAHM and my husband works out of the home. Our Helper comes 5 days a week, for 3 hours a visit. I'll admit it, on tough days, I am counting the minutes until she walks through that door. Our kids adore her, and so do I. We've had two different ladies over the years, both have been fun and creative, extremely reliable and really worked hard to make sure my kids are happy. Our current Helper does arts and crafts with the twins, makes cute little snacks that I just don't, swims, takes them to the zoo. Our Helper has really made it possible for me to be a less stressed out Mom so when I am with my kids, I'm a calmer mom.
Before Stressed Mamas we were paying the neighborhood teens to babysit and after numerous cancellations, and questionable situations in our home we made the switch. This service costs more than the standard $10/hr or $50 a night you might pay a teen but I've been very satisfied and I feel, you get what you pay for.

What a great business idea- let me make a service that provides not only Nannies, but household help also. Genius. I adore Rachel and have used Stressed Mamas for over 4 years. We have 3 children, 3 dogs, 2 cats and my husband and I are self-employed. These hands are blessed, but overflowing. We hired a Full-Time nanny via Stressed Mamas in 2018 and we've kept her this whole entire time. She's stuck with us! Our regular Nanny can't cover date nights so Rachel sends us Drop-In Helpers for that and they're so wonderful with our kids also. We also use their services for housekeeping and laundry. Not sure how we'd get by without them. Life savers!!
