When a mother is born it’s a beautiful thing. When she’s living abroad that experience is something even more – beautiful but also scary, funny, mystifying and certainly a journey full of bumps in the road and cultural (mis)adventures.
Together we spill the beans on the highs, the lows and everything you could imagine in between and beyond motherhood in a foreign place.
Despite the miles between each and every contributor, despite the multitude of cultures we have become mothers in, despite the many languages that separate us, and the experiences that differentiate us, there’s a common golden thread that links us together, along with every other mother across the globe – the same worry that our babies will be born healthy, that our children will grow up happy and that hope that we will be the best mothers we can be. I am so thrilled to be a part of this anthology, writing about the best part of giving birth in the Netherlands…….
When a baby is born, it’s a beautiful thing. No matter where that happens. And we are so excited to share that with you all, no matter where on this planet you are!
