Pregnant with 1st looking to meet other expecting moms in Zurich

Hi,
I am a 26 y.o Canadian pregnant with my first here in Zurich away from home/ friends. My husband is Swiss which is why we are here for the time being and Im due July 31st. I frequently travel back and forth to Canada working however would love to meet some other moms to be in the area. Once the baby arrives I will be here and would love to get to know some other english people in the area.

Let me know if you'd like to get together, chat, attend some english pre-natal yoga classes or just meet up for a tea!


Chat soon!

Re: Pregnant with 1st looking to meet other expecting moms in Zurich

I hope you hear from some other Mums to be soon. You could try a pregnancy yoga class in Zurich, to meet others in a similar situation.

Once your baby is born, every second week, I run a "Baby Cafe" or mothers meeting with coffee for Mums with babes in arms. We also have other meet ups and quite a few Mums are expecting their second child. English is the common language at our meetings. I will send you the link by PM, and if you are looking to connect with other Mums when the baby is born, I recommend this as a good start. Take care and good luck.

Re: Pregnant with 1st looking to meet other expecting moms in Zurich

Hi cdnswiss,

My wife is also pregnant and due end of May and would also like to meet other new Mums to be. Perhaps you could send a PM and she can reply to you?

Hi isascott,

Would you also be able to send us the link to your "Baby Cafe" as sounds like would be good once the baby is here!

Thanks

Re: Pregnant with 1st looking to meet other expecting moms in Zurich

I'm a new expectant mum too. I'm due in October so early days yet I know but worried about not having people around me in a similar situation so it would be great to meet new mums too.

I'm not in Zurich city, but based in Oberland. Happy to meet in Zurich though and share ideas and have tea :-).

Hi isascott

I'd also be interested in Your baby cafe recommendation. Would you mind PM'ing the link too? Thank you.

Hi and welcome to Zurich. We started a group for pregnant mums here in Zurich last summer. Was amazing to be able to meet lots of new ladies in the same situation. A lot of us have now had our babies but there are still lots of pregnant ladies. We've got a Facebook group called Zurich Mama's and regularly share information and organise play groups, coffee meets and days out. Send me a message if you're interested and I can have you added to the group.

Re: Pregnant with 1st looking to meet other expecting moms in Zurich

Hi cdnswiss,

I hope you were able to find a hospital that you like? So it looks like you will be staying. I know somewhat of how you are feeling and what you are going through. As i have mentioned before that I've decided to stay here to have my son. It was a little hard being away from family/friends especially being pregnant for the first time but the time goes by so fast. Also, my son was born 31st of July =) how neat is that!

Re: Pregnant with 1st looking to meet other expecting moms in Zurich

Hi cdnswiss,

I am first time pregger too and moved to Basel a week back. I agree with Sinab that its really difficult to be away from your comfort zone and start all over again from Hospitals/Gyane/Ob to knowing people...I am just on the same boat and and totally understand...
I dont know if you travel to my side but you are always welcome to meet up. Until then EF is very supportive I can tell you..I had met some amazing people here in Basel already due to the connect..
Keep looking and I am sure you will be settled in no time...
All the best and have a great birth experience and By the I am having a 18th July baby :-)!!

Re: Pregnant with 1st looking to meet other expecting moms in Zurich

Hi Cdnswiss,

I am also a new mum to be, 13 weeks, would love to meet and catch up. I moved only last June after 4 years in London so it`s all pretty new for me too. I am based in Zurich city, PM me if you`d like to catch up for tea or similar.

Hi isascott

I'd also be interested in Your baby cafe recommendation. Could you PM me the link too? Thank you.

Re: Pregnant with 1st looking to meet other expecting moms in Zurich

Hi there, I'm also expecting my first in October. I just RSVP'd to go to a meetup this Saturday if you're free, maybe I'll see you there.
New and Expectant Mothers Meetup
Otherwise, send me a PM if you'd like to chat or meet.

Also, I wanted to let you know about a prenatal yoga class I've been going to at my Gemeindeschaftzentrum (conveniently located). It's not an english class but I've learned some german and done a lot of yoga in the past so I manage. The instructor will speak english to help me out sometimes too. http://www.geburtundkind.ch

Re: Pregnant with 1st looking to meet other expecting moms in Zurich

Hi All,

I moved to Zurich 6 weeks ago after 7 years in London. I am due anytime! Officially 18th June.
It would be great to meet new mums. I am based in Zurich at the moment.

Re: Pregnant with 1st looking to meet other expecting moms in Zurich

Hi All,

so happy to read that i might not be alone during my pregnancy, here
I'm in the 18th week, my husband was relocated from the home company to Zürich and we moved here only a month ago, so I'm looking for new contacts to exchange experience

Could you PM me, as well if you plan to meet up?

Thank you,
Erika.
