The Expat Moms Club Korea has 48 members with several more set to join.

You just need one friend to make living in another country fun. One friend to go for coffee with or to lunch. One person who calls you besides your husband. This group has given that by being a source of online support and connecting people to others near them. I am so proud that we've helped women find natural childbirth friendly providers and hospitals, including the options to have a doula and homebirth. I am proud that we have introduced women to the ideas of Hypnobirthing/Hypnobabies which show that labor can be beautiful and peaceful. We've given pregnancy, parenting, and breastfeeding support to each other. We given "living-in-Korea" support to each other.

My next goal for this group is to gather the information that we have pieced together and put it in a document and distribute it to groups like the American Women's Club, The Seoul International Womens Association and The Armed Forces Spouses Club so that pregnant expats don't have to struggle to find options and support.

Thanks, moms!
