Looking to meet other new moms in Zurich area

Hi everyone,

I'm a new stay at home mom living in Dietikon looking to make some new mom friends and meet up for coffee or lunch in the Zurich area. If you have links for other similar meet ups I'd love to check them out. So far I've only found mommy and me yoga classes or parenting type classes but I'm looking for something more low key.

Thanks,
Brie

Re: Looking to meet other new moms in Zurich area

Thanks but I'd already looked on there and all I found were parenting class type groups and mommy and me yoga groups. I'm not looking for either of those type of groups at the moment. I've found some facebook groups though.

Re: Looking to meet other new moms in Zurich area

Hello

There are some groups on FB, but personally I have found going along to playgroups the best way to meet other mums.

I am actually moving back to the UK at the end of the month. The word you are looking for is Spielgruppe. Have a google, search on FB and see what you can find near to you.

I live in Langnau, so the Silver Coast Parent FB Group is fab but it covers Kilchberg, Rueslikon, Langnau, Thalwil, Horgen, Waedenswil etc... If you have a car, then you won't have trouble getting to them and there is a mixture of expats and locals.

Hope that helps.

http://www.hebammenpraxis-zuerich.ch/baby-bar/

The "Baby Bar" at the Hebammenpraxis is for new moms looking for exactly what you're looking for. You just turn up, pay 5chf and there is coffee and cake. I made some friends there. If you only speak English, don't be turned off by the German because people seemed pretty happy to socialize in either language.

Thank you so_cal, I’ll definitely check that out. I totally forgot (mommy brain) the Geburtshaus where I had my son also does something like that once a month.

Re: Looking to meet other new moms in Zurich area

Hi Brii, I’m also a mum living in Dietikon and my baby girl will be 2y in December. I work 50% so after 2,30pm I’m generally free. If you like and you are still looking for new moms to meet you can send me a pm 🙂 have a nice day!

Re: Looking to meet other new moms in Zurich area

Hi brii, I don't know how small your kid is, but an option could be to go to mutterberatung at badenerstrasse. When my kids were younger, this mutterberatungszentrum used to be open two afternoons a week. You could let your kid play there and maybe you get to know some other nice moms.

Re: Looking to meet other new moms in Zurich area

When we first moved, I had great luck meeting women through the American Women's Club. They provide childcare at certain events, so you can take the little person as well. No worries if you aren't an american; open to all. Check them out! Lots of new-ish moms looking to meet new friends. Pretty sure they have a FB account as well.

Since when?

When my late wife tried going to events, she was refused, despite being Canadian!

I've been going to and hosting events with them for years, there's plenty of Canadians, Brits, Irish and even some French and Swiss members.

Did they know that you were her husband?

What?! In the Zurich American Women's Club? How long ago was this? When I started going (in 2011) it was open to Americans and "friends and loved ones of Americans." I'm so sorry, that's absurd she was rejected.

BTW, I'm so sorry for your loss.
