Calling all pregnant ladies and mamas with young children in Eindhoven and its surrounds!
Expat Mama Village
Facebook group is a non-profit community initiative hosted by a group of expat mothers with professional expertise in the pre- and postnatal arena. They were inspired to create this group to share knowledge and provide a safe ‘village’ of support that is missing when mothers live abroad and away from their extended network of friends and family.
If you are looking to start a family, are pregnant or have young children, as an ex-pat mother, you have a unique set of needs. They hope to help support you through this virtual ‘village’ and future in-person meetups. Their aim is also to empower with health-related information and self-help strategies. They believe that facilitating connections with other ex-pat mothers from around the world who are going through a similar life phase builds a strong community network and resilient group of mothers who support each other.
The group was launched last month with six great workshops. Because of its success and community support, the hosts decided to do another free live webinar series. Introducing Together we bloom Summer edition which runs from June 8 – 14. There is a programme of six online classes from six professionals planned. See the schedule below otherwise more detailed information is available in the group.
