Welcome to the expat mom and dad website. We decided to create this website to chronicle our steps through pregnancy and into child rearing. We have both been living abroad for the past 10 years and while we have good friends here it was not until we got pregnant, that we realised how much we missed our family and friends at home.

As well as recording our own experiences, we hope to share our journey so that others who are in a similar position can learn from what we have gone through. We hope to share advice on different areas to try and make decisions easier for expectant parents to make; choice of doctors, birthing plans, breastfeeding, prams, hypnobirthing and childminding to name but a few.

The world is a much smaller place than it used to be and we would also like to reflect that in our posts, we hope to invite guests posters, other expats from around the world, to contribute on what their experiences have been with babies abroad.

If you have any comments, suggestions or queries, please feel free to get in touch here
