My Story

Hi! My name is Chandler Gilow and I am so glad you are here. I am a wife, mom of two little girls, a registered nurse, and a Lactation Specialist. After giving birth to our second daughter while abroad (in the middle of language learning), I saw a hole in the support for expat families. My husband and I are currently stateside for education and in this season, I have launch The Global Birth Coach. Since May 2020 I have created content and gathered resources to empower expat families through community, resources, and education. Please check out the website, join us on the Virtual Village Facebook group, and hop over to The Expat Birth Podcast to hear birth stories from around the world. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me (link at the top of the page).
