Whether you are a new mother needing some breastfeeding support or you’re looking to start up a career again, Message has been a lifeline for many Anglophone moms and their families.

Established in 1984 by six expatriate women living in Paris, the association has grown to over 2000 members. Their goal is to provide support and a network for English-speaking parents living in Paris. They have many subgroups including Working Moms and Message Entrepreneurs, and their members-only online discussion forums are very popular for sharing advice or selling second hand items. Also, their annual Bring-and-Buy sale is a huge hit for all the family.

Volunteers organize over 100 activities across 18 areas in and around Paris each month, from play dates to cultural, social, and professional events. You’re sure to find inspiration and support amongst this group of expat moms.

AAWE partners with Message on various events throughout the year and is a Friend of Message.
