Customer reviews:

If you are an expat living in Berlin and a confused mother-to-be like me, Gitanjali’s pregnancy and postpartum 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 both of Gitanjali’s tutorials as a first immersión into the world of having a baby in Germany. It is useful to have all the information in one tutorial 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 to expect.


Both her tutorials are great! 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.

Any Questions?

Here are some answers:

I share as much general information as possible about the topics mentioned. However, everyone’s situation is so different, so I cannot get into specifics in the tutorials. Each tutorial has five videos and some free downloads for you to refer to in your free time.

Yes! You can get Kindergeld for older children and siblings as well.

Generally, yes, you should get Elterngeld if your baby is less than 14 months of age and meets some other criteria.

You can book a consultation and we will figure it out together.

Both tutorials are ideal when you are pregnant. The first one has a lot of information on pregnancy along with postpartum care and support for mothers. Get it if you need help with registering your baby’s birth or applying for Kindergeld.
