This highly popular online course is specifically designed for parents expecting twins, triplets or more and is an excellent alternative if you cannot get to a course in person. It is suitable for first time parents and parents who have already had children.

The course is delivered by a facilitator who is a mother of twins. She will present for approximately 1.5 hours. We then have 30 minutes for a Q&A session, to make sure you have a chance to get all of your questions answered. 

What does the online course cover?

  • What makes multiple birth pregnancies different
  • Equipment
  • Tips on organising support
  • Time in hospital
  • Tips on sleep in the early days and how to sleep your babies in the same cot.
  • Neonatal care – multiple birth babies are more likely to be born early
  • Top tips to help with changing, bathing, routines, crying, older children, getting out and about and much more
  • What feeding options are available and how to go about it (breast, bottle and mixed)

Please note that this course does not cover the birth or any medical information - if you are interested in learning about the birth, our Antenatal courses may be of interest to you.

You can access the online course by using your computer and speakers (you do not need a webcam) or by telephone. You can also other devices such as ipads/iphones if you download the relevant app. Questions can be asked during the course via your keyboard.

Don't just take our word for it, here's some feedback from people who have attended.

"Our first pregnancy is a twin pregnancy, and we are both nervous about what to expect, and how to prepare ourselves. This webinar has provided a really helpful insight hearing first hand experiences. We couldn't recommend it more."

"Informative webinar which benefits from having mums of multiples leading the session. Some very helpful tips and info shared."

"The presenters style was really good and encouraging - they are very knowledgeable and down to earth - I think it was an extremely worthwhile webinar."

"I liked the practical tips from other parents of twins/triplets. It was done in a nice relaxed way and the presenters clearly knew their subject matter. Thank you!"
