S03E24: Living Large in Amsterdam

November 30, 2016 By Donna Bardsley 0 Comments

Navigating city life with one or two is kids is one thing, but what about with seven kids?

In this episode, we talk with Marielle Beckers, an educational psychologist and one of our own Amsterdam Mamas, about what it’s like to raise seven children in central Amsterdam. We find out how Marielle met her partner and how they came to be the parents of seven kids. She also tells us a little about their day-to-day life and how they travel and live in the city. 

We also hear from our director, Emmy McCarthy, about her difficult decision to end the Village Card and what means to Amsterdam Mamas.
