Welcome to Expat Mummy in Berlin

I moved to Berlin from Copenhagen with my English husband and toddler in 2011.  I usually turn to the internet to find out the answers to most questions in life but struggled to find the information I needed to start to get my son and I integrated into life there. I had done the expat thing before but it is harder second time round with a child.

I felt that the Berlin mummysphere is hard to penetrate and I often simply didn't know where to find things out - and I don't think I was alone. 

By exploring both the internet and the real world, my son and I started to slowly find things and places that we needed to have fun, save money, meet other people, enjoy food and a multitude of other experiences. I wanted to help other English speaking mums new to the city , who may have been feeling like I was and that is where this blog came from.

I'm not for one second suggesting that this is the definitive guide to all things mum (and dad) and baby in Berlin especially as we were based in the Prenzlauer Berg area but it is a start and everything here has been tried and tested by me and my son. If we liked it, its here. There are a number of businesses mentioned here but none of them have been asked to be featured unless the post says it is a sponsored post. Everything is my personal opinion but I hope that it is of use to you.

So welcome and enjoy. I no longer live in Berlin but I think that the content here is still helpful.
