Hello My twin babies were born in Nice in March 2003. I'd be happy to communicate with you over the phone/email as it is difficult for me to get out of the house at the moment. As I have recently been through the "maternity" system, I'd be happy to offer any advice etc or meet up if you have transport - I live in Valbonne. My husband was born in New Zealand, although lived most of his life in Canada.my email is sandraarthur@imaibox.comBest wishes

Hi Julie

My heart is bleeding for you, having children of my own, it is so difficult being away from your country and your people, I am South African living in Nice and know how you feel, I can’t speak very little French. I am in Bordeaux at the moment and then I am returning to Sa for a short while, I will contact you when I get back and we can have a good chat, I have been to your beautiful country and even wanted to move there at one stage.

All the best and look after yourself, looking forward to meeting you and soon the new baby, on babies I can tell you a lot, but about giving birth in France nothing!


Smile !

Try the Accuiel (sp?) de Ville Francais (AVF) in Sophia Antipolis.  They have 'Tots n Toddlers and all of the mothers are international - from Australia, New Zealand, England - many of them married to French men - they are only two more weeks left before they break for summer so get yourself over there to meet some mothers - (or alternatively, wait for September).  They have groups on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.

Good luck with the baby!!

I run bebe nager group on a Sat morning in Juan Les Pins. Many of the Mothers and Fathers are international so if you wanted to come and see what we do, you would be most welcome and you can also meet some of the mothers. In Sophia Antipolis there are many mother and baby groups where you can meet others like yourself. I also lived in New Zealand 2 yrs.Jan
