Hi all

 

I was wondering if we can start a Belgium-group, because there are many mothers (and fathers) in Belgium who are into natural and loving ways of parenting. It would be lovely to connect.

 

Anyone interested in homebirth/homeschooling/meeting up/living your dream/... in Belgium?

 

I'm in Ghent and would love to meet up with new people!

 

Warmly,

Annemie

We are possibly moving to Belgium. Do you happen to know what vaccines are required if any?

I have 2 kids one that is completely unvaxed and one that hasn't had any since 6 months.


Annemie 02-24-2012 07:12 AM

Hi Kelbud,

 

welcome to Belgium!

 

The only vaccine that is obliged here is polio, and if you can prove with a doctor's note that you child is allergic to the substances used in vaccines, it is legal to be unvaccinated, because this is considered as a valid reason to avoid all vaccines.

 

Where in Belgium will you be staying?

 

Feel welcome if you have other questions...

 

Warmly,

Annemie


kelbud 02-24-2012 10:14 AM

Thank you. She's not allergic, but had some issues when she was younger and my younger daughter (who is 2) has had no vaccines. I wouldn't be against getting them 1. I just didn't want them to have to have 50 to catch up or anything.

 

I guess we'd be in Brussels. My husband has a job opportunity with the NATO thing (non-military though). We will be finding out next week if/when we will be going.


kelbud 04-24-2012 12:49 PM

Well we should be there some time in mid-July. Not sure how I'm going to have everything ready by then, but I'm sure going to do my best.

Hello :)  I'm Barbara and I've been in Belgium for two years now.  My husband is a teacher in the Mons area.  I'd love to get together with other like minded mommas.


Annemie 07-11-2012 01:42 PM

Hi Barbara,

 

are you French-speaking?

Do you speak Dutch too?

 

We have set up a new email-list for meeting up with parents & children in Flanders, who feel inspired by the Continuum Concept (see the book by Jean Liedloff).

So the list is in Dutch and we meet up in Flanders.

 

If you're interested, here it is: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/continuum-vl/

 

Another option is the mamaditi-forum: http://www.mamaditi.be/forum/

 

I hope this helps you some...

 

Warmly,

Annemie (Ghent)

Hi there,

We recently moved to Belgium from Greece

Unfortunately I cannot be a member of your yahoo group since I speak neither French nor Flemish yet. I will start my Dutch lessons on September

However I would really love to be included in your meetings. I live in Halle

Do you speak English? We are moving there in 12 days, but will be staying in almost downtown Brussels until we find a house.

We're definitely looking to meet people.


Annemie 08-01-2012 12:10 AM

Hi English-speaking new neighbours,

 

you're welcome!

 

I'd say: join the list, because there are a few more members who speak English and are slowly learning Dutch.

 

This list is aimed at organising meetings, not at having long conversations online.

We prefer live conversations!

 

So if there are a few more English speaking members, we might even make the messages bilingual,

that's no big effort.

Then you can understand everything and we can meet up easily.

 

I have a very good friend in Brussels who also speaks English and I'm sure she'd be delighted to meet new people!

I live in Ghent myself, but our plans with the yahoo-group are to meet regularly in Ghent and Bxl, so that it's close-by for everyone now and then, and a little trip now and then.

 

So, if you send me your email address, I can invite you directly to the group or you can join by using the link I mentioned above.

 

Warmly,

Annemie


ZIMAROULIS 08-01-2012 03:28 AM

Hi and good luck with your move

Yes I do speak English, I will send you my contact details

By the way where are you from? We are from Greece and we have a 5year old son


ZIMAROULIS 08-01-2012 03:30 AM

Good morning,

 

You are right live conversations are always better

I sent you my email 

Looking forward to receive your invitation


ZIMAROULIS 08-01-2012 03:31 AM

Annemie I tried to PM you but it pops a message saying" I don't have the right to send private messages"

I even tried to send a PM but it pops the message access denied can you PM to check if I am allowed to reply to you?


Annemie 08-01-2012 04:35 AM

Hi, seems I have no permission to send you a private message either.

 

This is my emailaddres: zachtheid@yahoo.com

so if you can email me directly we'll work it out!

 

Warmly,

Annemie


kelbud 08-01-2012 04:59 AM

We are from Ohio, US. I have a 7 year old and a 2 year old. Or several months away from 3 and 8 anyway.

I would love to learn Dutch, so as long as somebody can fill me in on what's going on, I would love to meet live people.
