Oh my, I would have LOVED this when I was pregnant - unfortunately we moved up to Normandy and there were NO groups for pregnant ladies here - it seems the French just get on with it, whereas us anglo's like to get together and share the experience, good luck to you all, it's a wonderful experience, and when baby arrives, the fun really begins! :)  We plan to move back, so glad to know there is support if and when we decide to have baby no.2.

Hi there,

 

I am 6 months pregnant and need to start anti natal classes soon. Was wondering if anyone knows any really good english ones in the Cannes / Antibes area.

I am also really keen to meet some expecatnt Mum's to be in this area. I am a 31 year old New Zealander living in Cannes and would love to meet some english speaking people in the same situation.

Keep in Touch,

Charlotte

Hi, I have just found out I am pregnant (5 weeks) and having only moved to France in April and travelled a lot for work I don't know that many people yet. Really feeling like it would be good to have some kind of local support network and would love to find any sort of early pregnancy group or the equivalent of NCT in the UK. We are moving to Valbonne at Christmas time. Please let me know if you have any details of groups. Many thanks.
