Namaste! I'm Gitanjali
I am Gitanjali, founder of The Confused Mother. Thank you for your interest in simplifying your family life and career here in Germany!
Putting together my experiences and knowledge in multicultural settings and as an Indian living in Germany, I created The Confused Mother.
I would love to hear from you. Write me an email or reach out on Instagram, let’s chat!
India -> Germany
In 2014 I moved from India to Germany to start a new chapter of my life after working in the nonprofit sector in different places in India. After my studies in Communications Management and International Relations, I worked with refugees and international women to plan their studies and careers in Germany and prepare their documents in German. I offered young professionals guidance through workshops on values, motivation and communicating with courage. This work continued even while I had other jobs.
My Motherhood journey:
I had a baby during the Covid lockdown, which was very isolating. I wished for more contact with other women who shared my experiences. I wanted to encourage more open and honest conversations about motherhood so in April this year, I started talking to women about becoming mothers, motherhood and all the taboo topics that are related to it. But I wanted to do more. During my maternity leave, I came up with the idea for The Confused Mother.
What People Are Saying:
If you are an expat living in Berlin and a confused mother-to-be like me, Gitanjali’s online tutorial will give you a quick glance on what it is like giving birth in the country, how to prepare for it, and all the supports and benefits you should apply for to help you start this exciting journey at ease. Thank you Gitanjali!
I absolutely recommend this tutorial as a first inmersión into the World of having a baby in Germany. It is useful to have a complete source of information in only one tutorial and included info which otherwise I would have to search from different sources or they are even not full available in English. It is also cool that the tutorial give recommendations regarding what is normal and when to speak up
It feels like sitting with a friend and hearing about everything I need to know about pregnancy and postpartum. She talks into the camera and explains everything calmly and slowly. I found it very useful and learned so many things about Elterngeld and postpartum care that I’d never heard before.
