A mother’s life

After spending eight years in France, where she met her husband, Christina now lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She’s the mother of three young sons and works at the Alliance Française. She talked to us about the highs and lows of life as a busy working mother.

How many children do you have? Could you tell us their ages and first names? I have three boys: two were born in the France and the youngest was born in the United States. The oldest, Ilyas, is 11, the second oldest, Jalis, is 8, and the youngest, Sofian, is two and a half. I was 26 when I had my first son.

Your baby’s summer holiday suitcase

As the holidays draw near, packing your cases with a little one in mind may soon begin to feel like moving house! This is our advice on taking the essentials rather than overloading with unnecessary items.

It’s all a question of balance: you are certainly not going to want to spend your time doing the laundry (especially if the place you are spending your holidays doesn’t have a washing machine), but neither do you want to take too much luggage! You can estimate a maximum of one outfit per day and one pair of pyjamas for every two days plus one or two warmer outfits as the weather can be unpredictable. Go for soft cotton clothing that does not need ironing

Giving birth in water

Some maternity units have been offering mothers-to-be the option of giving birth in water, the foetus’ natural environment throughout pregnancy, since the 1970s. Although still not widespread, this method of delivery is becoming increasingly popular with mothers seeking a gentle birth as in tune as possible with their feelings.
