Courses

 

Tamba’s Multiple Pregnancy Ante-natal Courses.

The aim of the course is to enable couples to explore their choices in terms of delivery and subsequent care of their babies using evidence-based information. This is a unique intensive one-day programme (10am-4.30pm). There is a break for lunch (not included in the cost) and this can be an ideal time to chat to the other couples and swap ideas and tips. Group sizes are kept small with a maximum of eight couples to allow everyone to get to know one other and most people stay in touch with each other after the course, providing that vital support network for when their babies are born.

Couples set their own agenda for the course at the start of the day but these are topics that are often covered;

  • Birth and delivery choices for multiples
  • What to expect in labour
  • How to cope with pain and what choices are available for pain control
  • Weighing up vaginal versus Caesarean birth
  • How to make Caesarean birth special if that is your chosen option
  • Recovery after a Caesarean birth
  • Prematurity
  • What to expect in a Special Care Baby Unit
  • How to breastfeed or feed more than one baby
  • Routines and sleeping
  • Impact on your relationship
  • Individuality and language development of multiples

Sessions are often joined by local twin parents who come to share their experiences and answer questions on the day-to-day practicalities of life with more than one baby. All couples receive an information pack which includes the Healthy Multiple Pregnancy Guide, Preparing for Parenthood and the Breast feeding More Than One Booklet.

The courses are run by trained antenatal teachers or midwives(click here for more information on the course teachers) who are available by phone or email to help with any final questions in the days leading up to the birth or immediately afterwards.

The cost is £139. Please note that terms and conditions apply, particularly if you need to cancel for any reason see - Terms and conditions See our Frequently Asked Questions for further information which includes information on venues.
