Monthly Meet-Ups for Expecting Parents
Are you pregnant in the Netherlands? Congratulations! ‘Nouvelles Mamans’ is an expat community and support group aimed at making your journey into parenthood just a little bit smoother. ‘Nouvelles Mamans’ hosts monthly events in and around Amsterdam always around a specific theme relevant to pregnancy, birth or early parenting. Meet and connect with other expecting parents, share stories and experiences. It is so important to build a community as you enter this new phase of your life and especially for expats. And don’t stop at our name, we very much welcome and encourage the “Nouveaux Papas” (a.k.a New Dads) to join these monthly meet ups.
I founded this community in 2019 because I felt there was a gap in terms of community support around birth and parenting & especially for expats. It isn’t easy birthing in a different culture and becoming a parent without family nearby and a limited support structure . I missed having this kind of support community myself as an expecting mother so I decided to create one!
I am joined in these meetings by a small team of doulas and birth workers passionate about empowering couples entering the birth & parenting journey. We are mothers, we are French (hence the name), we’ve birthed and are raising our kids in the Netherlands. The events we host are in English and sometimes French language (depending on attendance) to cater to the expat community in and around Amsterdam.
We’re keen to meet you and to support you where we can in your journey into parenthood both through sharing our personal experiences as well as offering professional support and information where needed and possible. Welcome to our lovely community and we look forward to meeting you soon at one of our upcoming events!
