Meet Gitanjali

I am Gitanjali, founder of The Confused Mother. I have one daughter and live with my family in Berlin, Germany.

I moved from India to Germany in 2014 after working for several years in the non-profit sector in India. In the last eight years, I have worked with many international people to plan the next steps in their careers. Since I had a child last year, I found it essential to support other parents in their journey and have open conversations about motherhood.
