New mom in Zurich

Hello everyone. I'm not really new to Zurich and have actually used this forum quite a lot since moving here 2 years ago. You all are an excellent resource and quite entertaining as well!

We now have a new addition to our family (she's 6 months now) and am just finishing up my job to stay at home with the little one. I'd really like to meet more English-speaking moms in the Zurich area and see if anyone knew about any playgroups or groups for moms with babies? I'd love to introduce my daughter to other babies/children as well as get to know some more moms myself.

Look forward to meeting more people!

Megan

Hi Megan, and welcome to a more active participation in the Forum!

You probably already know to check out the Social Events section for meet-ups with people in similar situations, so hopefully something will pop up there soon for you!

Re: New mom in Zurich

Hello and welcome to the Forum. Don't be shy to initiate a coffee morning / afternoon stroll etc. You may be surprised how many are in similar situations to yourself. Leading from the front brings great results.

Hi there
I am also new to Zurich with 2 little one (daughter 2 years old, son 7 months) I have no problem arranging something so we can meet up. I live in Männedorf and I would happily offer our flat for a first meet up.

Re: New mom in Zurich

The 'moms and tots' group meets in Promenadengasse (short walk from Stadelhofen)...it's a part of the IPC - international protestant church.

Their next meeting is on Wednesday 2nd March, from 9:30am - 11:00 in the hall of the French Reformed Church - and they offer babysitting and craft for older children (running around 1-4 year oldes) in a separate room.

Just by coincidence, I am presenting the topic next week which is on 'language' and we'll talk about bilingual and multilingual language learning...

Re: New mom in Zurich

Hi
I can offer Mondays or Thursdays mornings or afternoons for a playgroup date. I have also signed up for the mums in zurich website. Seems like a great group of mums
I think I could accomodate around 3-4 mums plus bubs. Not too sure if there is any interest.
Kind regards
Peronei

Re: New mom in Zurich

All the feeback is great, thank you so much!!! I checked out the moms group website and think I will also sign up.

I also was talking over PMs to another mom and we are hoping to meet for coffee this Friday or next Monday, so I will let you all know once we get our location and time finalized if anyone else is interested in joining us for a meet-and-greet.

Hopefully we can all compare notes b/c I'd love to get involved in something regular with any of you. I think it would be great for my daugheter to have some more interaction with other kiddos as right now its pretty much me, her and our 2 dogs

Look forward to meeting some of you soon.

Re: New mom in Zurich

Count me in too!
Danai is waking up late in the morning, usually ard 9.30am so any time after 12.30 pm is great for us.
Hope that's ok with you all.
Looking forward meeting you.

Re: New mom in Zurich

Hi Ladies,

So it seems that Monday will work for most of you. Let's meet this coming Monday the 7th at 2:00 at the Starbucks in Oerlikon (Max Bill-Platz 15
8050 Zürich). Its pretty convenient to both the station and trams. Look forward to meeting you all. Feel free to let any other moms know as well.
