Pregnant, moving to Bern. Any other bumps in Bern?

Hi there,
I'm moving to Bern at the end of May with our first baby due mid-August.
I don't speak a lick of German (yet) and would love to be able to talk with other women about all things baby.
Send a message if you want to chat!
Cheers,
Tara

Re: Pregnant, moving to Bern. Any other bumps in Bern?

Welcome to the Forum Tara, Bern is a lovely city.

When you first arrive here try and make contact with St Ursula's English speaking church.
It will be a good start to meet new people. There are many long term residents there, from all walks of life.

Every Wednesday 09:15, Mothers & Tots http://www.stursula.ch/whats_on.html

You might want to visit the US Embassy for information about

Re: Pregnant, moving to Bern. Any other bumps in Bern?

St. Ursala's weekly moms and tots group is a great place to meet moms and soon to be moms. I know more than one woman who started going while they were pregnant with their first child. There is a nominal fee of 5 fr. to cover costs.

Another great resource: Expat-Moms-In-Switzerland Yahoo group.

There are many expat moms in Bern and everyone has been very welcoming. We moved to Bern two years ago when I was pregnant with our second child.
