A 3,000 member strong community of international mothers, founded by Nathaleen Hewitt in 2013 and administered by Jennifer Dickson, Jennifer Chamberlin and Meagan Le Coq. Nathaleen explains; «This is a support group which helps mums, with a hive of information». Jennifer Chamberlin adds, «For me English Speaking Mums is about helping the mums who just arrive in Paris to find their feet. It can be daunting if you don’t speak French. You can ask any question and get answers from people within minutes. Ladies make connections and online acquaintances and become true friends. It’s been the best group I’ve ever joined on Facebook and it’s changed not only my life, but also that of my children». Other women’s networks include 2016 winner, Nadia Soufi’s Paris For Her, Mamas Latinas en Francia and Association of American Wives of Europeans.
