Expat Moms

Welcome to Expat Moms! Having children in a foreign country is never easy. Hospitals and doctors have different ideas about pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. You don't always have a large network to help and support you like you would at home. Plus we and/or our husbands have demanding work schedules which may include a lot of travel. And how can we include our family and friends back home when we're so far away? Join this group to get help and support from other moms that are far away from home. Ask questions, share your funny stories or just vent! Tell us a little bit about yourself when you join: your children and their ages and where you're living right now!
