Great news for Expectant Mums and Dads in Scotland

15th January 2018

We’ve received some exciting news which is going to be a massive benefit to our parents-to-be in Scotland.

Thanks to our lovely friends at National Lottery’s Awards For All Scotland, Tamba has been given £10,000 for Multiple Matters Antenatal and Parentcraft Sessions.

These sessions are held across Scotland for all expectant parents or carers of multiples from 20 weeks’ gestation.

They are led by our registered midwife Laura who has a wealth of personal and professional experience, including being a mum to identical twin boys.

The Multiple Matters sessions are run monthly, alternating between Glasgow, Edinburgh, Forth Valley and Aberdeen. So no matter where you are in Scotland, there should be one you can reach.

Tamba’s Scotland coordinator Helen Peck said: “We’re so grateful to Awards For All Scotland for helping to fund this project. So many of our parents say how informative and useful the sessions are – often putting their minds at rest or just making them feel more confident and prepared for their new arrivals.

“They’re very popular though, so we encourage expectant mums, dads and carers to get their places booked fast.” Sessions are from 10am-3.30pm and include a light lunch. Topics covered include routines and sleeping, breastfeeding or bottle feeding more than one, caesarean births, what to expect in labour, birth and delivery choices for multiples and much much more.

We can also offer private sessions in London and postcodes RH1, TF10, BS21 LS22 and the surrounds, however, arrangements can sometimes be made for other areas. Private sessions are three hours long and cost £225 for two people, plus tutor travel costs. Please email if you’re interested in a private booking.
