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 and Birth (led by a midwife)
- Help and Support
- Practical Baby Care - including routines and sleep
The other main aim of the course is to put you in touch with others in the same boat, and at the same stage 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.
Classes take place in January, March, May, July, September and November each year, and are being held at the rate of £30.00 which covers attendance at all three nights per family. Keep an eye on the Events page for details of upcoming classes.
