Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hi all charming mumis,

I am pregnant for 5 months, the due date on November.
I have interest to join the meet up group. And I am looking for some pregnant yoga course, or mild sport course? Any advice?

When is the next meeting?

Viona

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

hi all - I am NOT a native English speaker but my husband is, we have a 16.5 months old son and I am 22 weeks pregnant (remember: no pregnant woman here talks about months, neither do the gynecologists, they count in weeks ).
I would love to meet some native English speakers to give my son (and new baby) the possibility to not only speak German but also learn lots of English, so I'd love to meet you guys one night and maybe give some advise regarding giving birth in a ZH hospital?

Could anyone drop me a private message? I am having trouble finding threads again, blame it on the pregnancy

@ vionaleews: I am also due in Nov and attending a yoga class.. means, class will start first of September, Zurich Wipkingen, every Wed evening (10 times I believe)..

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hi, I'm also interested in meeting up. I'm 21 weeks right now (due December 21, 2010), and very excited. However, I'd like to start seeing other mums as I don't really know anyone having kids!

I'm also wondering if anyone is interested in child-care swapping after the big day arrives - I suppose I'll start another thread for that one!

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hi All,

Great to find a link like this - just what I've been looking for! I am 3 months pregnant, due in Feb 2011.

I would love to meet up for chats and support - who do I contact?

Many thanks,

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hi!

I'd be interesting in meeting up, too! I'm due with my first child on December 26, 2010, and am quite new to Zurich. I'd love to swap stories and information with other mothers-to-be and mothers...and also learn more about this town! How do I sign up?

Thanks,
Sharon

Thanks

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Mette (and everyone else, below):

First of all, congratulations!

Secondly, please make sure you sign up for health insurance ASAP. You will (most likely) not be eligible for "private" or "semi-private" hospitals for giving birth your first year here. So, you'll be giving birth in a public hospital (in a private room) and later sharing a room with a few other ladies (depending on the hospital in Zurich, 2-4 per room).

I highly recommend my OB/Gyn: Frau Dr. med Jasminka Kunz, who is located on Bleicherweg off of the Stockerstrasse tram stop. I haven't had any experience with her partner, Herr Dr. med Landolt, but my friends really like him as well. Both speak English, as do their staff.

Here's their website:
http://www.topgyn.ch/index.html

Although affiliated with private hospitals, both Drs. Landolt and Kunz will see "general insurance" patients (like me!). They will see you through birth (and after), just not for the birth itself. However, at most hospitals here, you will get the doctor (and/or midwife) on duty when you go into labor. They will interview you prior to labor (around 28-32 weeks), so that you're all set to go at the hospital.

We recently visited the Triemlispital, and were rather impressed by the people and facilities. After birth, you're put in a 2- or 3- person room. Aftercare is generally really good, with visits from the midwife at home after you check out of the hospital.

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me.


All others, I'd love to plan a meet-up, PM me if interested!

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hi All

Not sure who to contact as this thread seems to have been going on sometime.

Would love to meet up with any mums or mums to be as I am due in approx 3months and will be over in Zurich in 2 weeks time.

And to be honest I am still in the denial phase that this is actually happening I am just pretending I am getting fat!!

Would be great if any one could advise on any get togethers that you dont mind a newbie joining in on

Thx S

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hi everyone! I guess I could more or less copy paste from the posts above: I recently relocated to Zürich and I'm pregnant with my first child (due beginning of March) and I would very much like to get to know other mothers-to-be in the area! Not saying that pregnancy must be the only topic of conversation, but since I'm new to this and have few parents/parents-to-be among my friends, it would be great to get together with people in more or less the same situation. Send me a message if interested!

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hi there,

We are organizing a meet up for pregnant women in Zurich. Of course young mothers and others interested in socializing are also welcome. To communicate easily among interested people, we have created an yahoo group. If you are interested in becoming a part of this group please send a PM with your email ID. I shall send you an invite to join the group. This way you can track when the next meet up is being organized.

Cheers
Anu

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

This thread is pretty old, but I thought before starting a new one, I would try bumping it up.

I am 4 months pregnant with our first baby and living in the Zurich area. I would love to get together with other expectant ladies and exchange stories, tips and so on. I work 100% but I'm available some afternoons, evenings and weekends. Would anybody like to get together? Please reply to this thread and let's see how many of us there are out there and get a group started!!

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

I am almost three months pregnant with my second child but was thinking of trying to organise a pregnant group meet-up! So great bump

I was actually part of this group originally with my first child and it was a truly invaluable experience. I made lots of friends through it but also found the support fantastic I would love to be part of another group for this pregnancy. I work part-time now but otherwise am very flexible about when to meet up... I'll PM you with my contact details!

Hi

I am 19 weeks pregnant due in September and would love to meet up with some mums to be. I have just moved to Zurich and don't know anyone so it would be great to meet other bumps.

Thanks

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Kind of funny to see the thread still lives and I am very happy if it helps other moms meet up

Original group allowed me to meet some of my closest friends of today...

Have had a baby and in the meantime she has grown into a proper little girl and am expecting my second any day...

So I wish you all much fun in meeting each other, exchanging stories and anectodes and forming strong bonds!

And of course... all the best for the pregnancies!!!

Ciao
K
