Home » 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.

Next meet up: in ENGLISH  Saturday 7 December from 10h to 12h at Matka Amsterdam  

To register please send an email to Marjorie@experiencemindfulness.nl OR mark yourself as going on our Facebook event 

‘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.

This initiative is brought together by a group of doulas and childbirth educators passionate about empowering couples entering the birth & parenting journey. We are all mothers, all French (hence the name?) although most of us have quite an international background and spent most of our time outside of France. The events we host are in English and French language to cater to the French community in and around Amsterdam as well as a larger expat audience. We alternate every month a French speaking event with an English speaking one. Most of us have experienced what it is like giving birth and/or raising our kids in the Netherlands. 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!
