January 2016 Antenatal Class

Repeats every week every Tuesday 3 times.

Tuesday, January 12, 2016 - 19:30 to 21:30
Tuesday, January 19, 2016 - 19:30 to 21:30

The January classes will run on the 5th, 12th and 19th January 2016 - from 7.30pm until around 9.30pm. The classes will be held at Fairmilehead Parish Church Halls, which has been chosen due to its excellent facilities, easy parking and central to our catchment area of Edinburgh & Lothians. 

This course is being held at the rate of £30.00 which covers attendance at all three nights. Please contact antenatal@edinburghtwins.co.uk to book a place.

The course is NOT designed to take the place of other mainstream antenatal provision from either the NHS or NCT. We are hoping to provide a twins perspective - 'how do I feed twins?', 'how do I carry twins?', 'what kind of routine should I have?', 'Can I get on a bus with twin buggies?' and so on - and so we are aiming to provide discussion, experience and advice for these and the gazillion other questions which start occurring to you as soon as you find out you have twins! 

The course will specifically cover the following topics: 

Pregnancy & Birth & Special Care Baby Unit and Neonatal care (led by a midwife)

Equipment and Feeding 

Help & Support, Practical Baby Care 

In week 1 there will be a sample session from Physiobumps. For more information please see their website www.theedinburghpregnancyclass.co.uk. It may be something you would be interested in before attending the classes and is most useful in the 2nd trimester of pregnancy.

The other main aim of the course is to put you in touch with others in the same boat with a view to providing the opportunity for you to form a network of twin parents from whom you can get support on an ongoing basis.
