We are moving there this month, I have a 6 and 4 year old. We will be homeschooling. (any leads on other HSers in the city?)


My husband will be working with basketball India, I am a midwife (a CPM) and hoping to do some charity work or help women with homebirths. I know about Birth India, this is a wonderful NGO!!!


I am looking for advice and thoughts on living in this city with kids. We are going to be looking for language lessons, and the typical lessons for kids music, art, sports and stuff like that.


Not sure where exactly in the city we will live, we will find an apartment once we get there!


I guess I am just looking for other families living in Delhi who are making it work!!!


looking forward to responses! Thanks ladies!

Hi, I moved to Delhi in July this year with my two kids. I live in Safdarjung Enclave. Have you connected with any families yet? Am also a member of Birth India though its not too active in Delhi. Although its not my line of work I'd love to hear about your interest in homebirths. A friend of mine has recently moved here from Canada and is setting up a maternity clinic in rural Rajastan (near Kota). I think part of their work is also to train traditional midwives.


PM me your mobile number and we'll try and connect.

So I know this is a super old post...BUT I stumbled upon it through Google...and have signed up to this just to try and contact you!!


Are you still in Delhi??


I am living in Varanasi...I am a mumma of an 18month old little girl who is GORGEOUS!


We are passionate homebirthers...and as we begin to think about another baby I can;t think any further without first considering Where to have a baby???


We are commited to India, so I don;t want to go back to Australia, but at the same time do not trust ANY hospital in Varanasi...and I've heard Delhi are just as bad!


I only want a homebirth, but would have no idea where to even start with finding someone I trust.


SO I guess...I want to know about you, and if the time comes, may have to hop on a train to Delhi!


Love love
