BABY MINA'S DAD
How to have a baby in France in English?! Yep, I Googled this. We had just moved to Paris & everything was new from finding doctors & childcare to parenting … all in a foreign language! Message helped us make friends & get answers to all the day-to-day questions.

THEO, ELEANOR & MIA'S PARENTS
The absolute best way for English-speaking families to get integrated, get advice, make friends and generally figure out life as a parent here. Essential for new and longtime Parisians alike. One of the best things about living in Paris!
ADRIEN & LÉA'S MOM
I was so grateful for the support from my Message peeps when we went through the grueling getting-into-college process.
In a career transition when we moved here, the entrepreneurs group helped me keep momentum on my professional goals, while new friends helped me navigate life in my new city.
