Note from the founders

MumAbroad is one of Europe’s leading english language sites for parents from the international community, living in or relocating to Spain, France, Italy and Germany. For more than 10 years, we have been creating unique content for a smart international niche market, from detailed information on nurseries and schools to recommendations by mums and dads on health, maternity, kids & toddler activities, relocation and services. We have built up a platform for Women in Business across all our regions as well as a blog, which offers insightful stories on relocation and the challenges it entails. More recently we launched a YouTube channel, interviewing brilliant women who have changed their lives and launched new exciting businesses whilst living abroad. Our facebook pages have become a go-to online forum for ‘expat’ parents. Our thanks go to our amazing multilingual community, whose contribution to help create these pages has been priceless.  We hope you will be with us for many years to come.
