<p>Hi all</p>
<p> </p>
<p>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.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyone interested in homebirth/homeschooling/meeting up/living your dream/... in Belgium?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm in Ghent and would love to meet up with new people!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Warmly,</p>
<p>Annemie</p>

<p>We are possibly moving to Belgium. Do you happen to know what vaccines are required if any?</p>
<p>I have 2 kids one that is completely unvaxed and one that hasn't had any since 6 months.</p>

<p>Hi Kelbud,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>welcome to Belgium!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>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.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Where in Belgium will you be staying?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Feel welcome if you have other questions...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Warmly,</p>
<p>Annemie</p>

<p>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.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>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.</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>Hi Barbara,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>are you French-speaking?</p>
<p>Do you speak Dutch too?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>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).</p>
<p>So the list is in Dutch and we meet up in Flanders.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If you're interested, here it is: <a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/continuum-vl/" target="_blank">http://groups.yahoo.com/group/continuum-vl/</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another option is the mamaditi-forum: <a href="http://www.mamaditi.be/forum/" target="_blank">http://www.mamaditi.be/forum/</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I hope this helps you some...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Warmly,</p>
<p>Annemie (Ghent)</p>

<p>Hi there,</p>
<p>We recently moved to Belgium from Greece</p>
<p>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</p>
<p>However I would really love to be included in your meetings. I live in Halle</p>

<p>Do you speak English? We are moving there in 12 days, but will be staying in almost downtown Brussels until we find a house.</p>
<p>We're definitely looking to meet people.</p>

<p>Hi English-speaking new neighbours,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>you're welcome!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'd say: join the list, because there are a few more members who speak English and are slowly learning Dutch.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This list is aimed at organising meetings, not at having long conversations online.</p>
<p>We prefer live conversations!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So if there are a few more English speaking members, we might even make the messages bilingual,</p>
<p>that's no big effort.</p>
<p>Then you can understand everything and we can meet up easily.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have a very good friend in Brussels who also speaks English and I'm sure she'd be delighted to meet new people!</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>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.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Warmly,</p>
<p>Annemie</p>
