Baby in Berlin helps expecting and new parents navigate the german system around pregnancy, birth and the first few months of baby. Managed by Elodie Roux, a French mum-of-two who has been living in Germany for the past 12 years, Baby in Berlin promises a warm yet professional guidance to all expat parents in Germany. Elodie also provides at home new mother services, which can be paid for by German health insurances (this service is only available in Berlin).
Whether you're expecting a baby and are lost in the German system, or if you just gave birth and need help either at home or with the bureaucracy, please take a look at my services below. I would be delighted to accompany you during these precious moments and bring you peace of mind.
Whether you need information on the medical exams offered during pregnancy in Germany, or are wondering how the parental leave system works, whether you need to find a midwife or a doula, I'm here to guide you and allow you to enjoy your pregnancy in peace. I have already helped hundreds of families and couples during their pregnancy and have allowed them to feel confident about what's awaiting them.
Baby is finally here! But between the rough nights, the start of breastfeeding and the red tape, no wonder if you're at a loss as to what needs to be done. Asking for the baby's birth certificate, applying for Kindergeld, Elterngeld or understanding how to get a passport for your child in Germany, we can explain you everything and support you in your applications!
Becoming a mother is already quite an experience in itself. But giving birth in Germany, in a foreign country, where you might not understand the language or the customs, can be a personal and cultural shock. Post-partum new mother care services are here to help you through this phase. An open ear, warm home-cooked meals, massages, running errands for you, everything is put in place to support a fast and long-lasting recovery after birth.
In my regular in-person workshops, I offer expecting and new parents answers to burning questions they have on the topics of paperwork and daycare. These workshops are ideal for expat couples wanting to know more about the system but who are confident enough to go through the steps themselves. They are a great way to get guidance in a cost-effective way. For more personalized and individual assistance, please check out my pregnancy or paperwork after birth services.
"Elodie has been the most perfect guide through the maze of giving birth in Berlin. I was 7 months pregnant when we move with my family and Elodie helped me tremendously with everything I needed to give birth.
She is extremely professional and very very kind. She is definitely the best ally to have in this journey."
Manon, mother of Magdalene
