The Baby Squad is a dystopianthriller by Andrew Neiderman first published in 2003. Set in the United States in the not-too-distant future, the novel envisages a future American society where giving birth to children is illegal and where only few women are biologically able to reproduce. Rather, perfect babies are created in laboratories outside the woman's womb and then put up for adoption. When the wife of an aspiring local politician becomes pregnant she reluctantly confides in her husband and is secretly sent to an institution where she can spend the remaining months of her pregnancy and give birth to her baby.
