Antenatal Day Classes

The course aims to provide expectant couples of multiples in Northern Ireland with information on multiple pregnancy and support and advice on health and wellbeing during pregancy and the first few months following delivery. The session is delivered by a registered midwife and TAMBA NI Coordinator with multiple-specific experience and runs from 10am - 3 pm with a break for lunch (light lunch is provided). The small group numbers allow everyone to get to know one other and many stay in touch with each other after the course, finding a vital support network for when their babies are born.

Prenatal period - your health and making the most of your appointments, bonding, organising support, planning ahead including equipment, looking after yourself, packing your bag

The birth - labour, pain relief and special care

The early days - practical tips to prepare for your new arrivals, carrying babies, crying, breastfeeding multiples, looking after yourself, safe sleeping
