Having twins or more? Listen to our 'Ask the Midwife' webinar

This webinar is available free of charge to everybody that is signed up to our Pregnancy Countdown Tool. Tamba's pregnancy countdown tool provides you with weekly updates on your pregnancy and how your babies are developing. 

Important note: whilst every care is taken to provide information,Tamba does not undertake any liability for any error or omission. Listeners should always seek professional advice from their healthcare practitioner as appropriate to specific circumstances.

Research has shown that those families who have access to a named midwife throughout their pregnancy cope better both during their pregnancy as well as afterwards because they feel better prepared and better supported.

Sadly less than 20% of maternity units have a named specialist midwife for multiples. Families tell us that they would like to have been able to talk to a midwife that had experience of multiples to ask questions that were concerning them. In order to support you we have asked our midwifery experts to put together this webinar of the 13 most frequently asked questions.

Mummy's tummy! Mother expecting twins shows her tummy and holds two heart-shaped signs, one for each twin.

Here are a few of the questions answered on this webinar:

  • How will my pregnancy and care differ from a mother expecting one baby?
  • How do I know my babies are growing well?
  • Is it normal to feel one twin more than the other and how can I best track how my babies are moving?

  • What are the possible complications of a multiple birth pregnancy?

  • What are my options for giving birth and what factors influence this?
