This short course is designed to cater for the needs of women/couples expecting twins.  Although primarily aimed at first time parents, parents who have already had a singleton baby also find these courses useful.  The first class focuses on preparation for birthing twins (vaginally or by c-section) and the second class focuses on feeding your babies and and getting organised for coping with  newborn twins. Women/couples should book into a course that finishes by the time they are 30 – 34weeks pregnant.
