Welcome to our IWI Mums 'N' Kids Community. Our role is to connect you with your neighbourhood community to feel at home here in Istanbul. Many of our frequently asked questions involve how to register a birth, how to find a great pediatrician doctor, where and when to visit the dentist, how to find Mums 'N' Kids clubs, activities and events, where to shop and where to play. Most importantly, we fill the need for "How can I find like-minded women in the same stage of transition as me as an ex-pat and find support, comfort, answers and fun. New mothers, experienced mothers, as super great women; we want to connect with you!" Join our Mums 'N' Kids neighbourhood network today.
We have weekly playgroups organised according to the kids’ ages. These are usually hosted by our members at their homes, meet-ups at parks or walks along the Bosphorus coast. These playgroups are free of charge for IWI members. This is an opportunity to meet other pregnant ladies and parents of infants or toddlers, as well as share the joys and trials of motherhood while creating a support network. Mums n Kids does not mean mums only – Dads n Kids are just as welcome! We hope to arrange family brunches and parties so that Dads can join in the fun.
The coordinators will add you to the group's mailing list to keep you updated of future events.
