Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hello to all!

I am living in Zürich and 4 months pregnant with first baby and I wanted to know if there are any of you in similar situation out there and if so, if you would like to meet and chat about bellies and other things and maybe also have a nice non-alcoholic cocktail!

Please PM/Email me if interested and I will set something up!

Cheers,
C

Hmmmm. . . read the thread post and was thinking that maybe you were looking for a date (kidding)

Congratulations on your pregnancy. I hope everything goes exactly as it should.

Hope your boss soon replaces you (that sounds awful, but you know what I mean) so that you can come over here and get settled. I'm sure you'll find contacts in the Forum. Unless it's about arrangements to meet with one specific person, I'd keep to open posts if I were you. There are probably other members in similar situations who would be glad to exchange 'notes' with you too. There is an awful lot to learn in a new country and this is a special time for you all. I'm sure you'll soon get used to making posts etc. and there will be masses of helpful advice here.
All good Wishes to all future Mums.

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Firstly - congratulations Hope you are feeling well too.

Triemli is a great hospital with a maternity clinic. In fact I know some ex-Swiss living in the UK who hate the unreliability and uncleanliness of the NHS so much they come back here to give birth.

My English husband (nothing to do with birth or women's stuff unfortunately for me) works at Triemli and he says how amazingly different it is from the NHS - especially for cleanliness - it is spotless and there isn't even any talk about MRSA - not sure why the NHS can't do this, here once a patient is moved out of a bed, the entire bed is taken away to the basement, stripped and totally cleaned top to toe and a clean bed is put in it's place. In several hospitals back in Blighty you're lucky to get clean sheets.

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

We were debating weather to go back to England to have the baby (Mainly to have all family near) But after reading how much cleaner the hospitals are in Zurich and the care is so much better then we are having our child in Zurich. Family will have to come to us!!!

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hallo!
I wrote you an email

3 of us met up last evening and it was really fun to swap stories around a nice meal and a glass of sparkling (water)

If anyone else out there is interested in joining us, let me know.

We plan to meet fairly regularly, about every 2 weeks or so.

Cheers,
C

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

I am four months too! Crazy. I have been here for almost a year on and off, cause I travel back to the states some, but I have yet to meet any girlfriends, which all of you must know how importnant they are. So I was just thinking that now I am pregnant, maybe I could find a place to meet some other pregos : ) Where do you guys usually meet? It sounds like such fun! I have my two sisters, and Mum in the states to talk to, but having someone going through the same things as you is comforting! I would love to join for a glass of sparkling : )

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hello Ladies, my wife is also pregnant but she is not yet here, she will arrive here next weekend once the first critical semester will be finished. We'd like to know more about what should we do here in Zürich, We need to find a good doctor for the pre-natal, which we already started in Brazil. For what I have read we will only be covered by the basic insurance, what it means? where can we do the pre natal? could be with any doctor? someone can suggest us a good doctor in Zürich area?

Cheers,
Mario

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hello there

I'm also pregnant, due in October and would love to join your group if I could, as I've been struggling to find anyone who is pregnant here? Sadly I live in Bern, so I'm not a local, but would be completely prepared to get the train to meet you guys? I'm away for the 23rd July, but would be really interested to know when your next 'date is?

Re: Pregnant in Zurich? Want to meet up?

Hello All,

I am also due in October and would love to meet up with this group.

By the way does anyone know about a good English/French speaking Gyno? The one I have at the moment doesn't speak good english and I find it a bit akward...

Hope to hear from you soon.
Loulou
