Paris A-Z: T is for Trousseau

Paris A to Z: T is for Trousseau

The Sassy Guide to the City of Light

As an American living in Paris for nearly 9 years, I have plenty of words of wisdom to share about this glorious, yet sometimes frustrating, city. Each weekday this month I will share my thoughts on some of the best stuff to do in Paris. Today's letter, T, is for Trousseau.

I hope you don't have a need to visit a hospital on your visit to Paris, especially not a maternity/children's hospital, but I can't talk about Paris without talking about this hospital. It's where my son, Leonardo, and daughter, Stella, were born. Leo was a preemie and received excellent care during his 11 day stay in the NICU. And with the exception of one horrible doctor's appointment, I received excellent care throughout both pregnancies as well. The French healthcare system is amazing and I just had to give it a little shout-out.

While I'm shouting, have you checked out my new book, Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer? My sequel picks up where Confessions of a Paris Party Girl left off, giving an inside look on raising kids in Paris, particularly being a croissant-eating, pregnant whale among a sea of skinny French ladies.
