Starting a family as a nomad with Julia Jerg

Starting a Family as a Nomad with Julia Jerg

May 5, 2021 | ,

Are you a parent who is dreaming about going nomadic with your family? Or are you a current nomad thinking about starting a family? If these relate to you then you might be wondering HOW you can become a digital nomad family.

In this episode, I was joined by Julia Jerg and we both shared our experiences of how and where we had our children abroad. We also explore the topics of balancing work and family while traveling, what childcare looks like for nomads, and much more.

Julia shares the importance of your mindset when it comes to the birthing process and how her nomadic lifestyle empowered her to do a home birth. We also chat about why she chose certain locations to give birth, how you can get residency in some countries by having a baby there, and how and why to connect with other digital nomad families.
