The next class is to run on Tuesday nights in July - the 17th, 24th and 31st from 7.30 pm until around 9.30pm. The class will be held at Fairmilehead Parish Church hall in Edinburgh. This venue has been chosen as it is quite central given our large catchment - being Edinburgh and the Lothians. This course is being held at the rate of £30.00 which covers attendance at all three nights.
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 (led by a midwife)
- Special Care Baby Unit and Neonatal care (led by a midwife)
- Help & Support
- Practical Baby Care - including routines & 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.
Feedback from the first two courses.......
“I'm so glad I came. I'm not sure I'd have coped so well without it. I am now ready to have some twins!!”
“I have found out things that we never thought about. Logistics of twin parenting really helped our thought process. Discussions with other expecting parents was good”
“Lots of good tips given”
“Yes - without a shadow of a doubt in the last 3 weeks I have planned and prepared more than I did in the first 5 months of being pregnant”
"Definitely boosted my confidence regarding coping with twins. Having had a child already I still felt nervous about having twins but this has boosted my confidence and a great way to meet other twins mums"
