Multiple Pregnancy Antenatal Courses

Tamba is the leading UK provider of specialist multiple specific courses for expectant parents of twins, triplets or more.

This course is designed for women expecting twins, triplets or more and their birth partners, and couples expecting multiples using a surrogate.  We recommend that you attend our antenatal courses from 20 weeks to 32 weeks. 

The courses are run by trained antenatal teachers or midwives who are available by phone or email to help with any final questions in the days leading up to the birth or immediately afterwards.

To find your nearest antenatal course, please follow the link to your area.

  • What happens if your babies arrive early

  • What equipment do you need for twins, triplets or more

  • How to feed, change and care for more than one baby at a time

  • How to get out and about with twins, triplets or more

  • How to survive the early days and weeks after the birth

Don't just take our word for it, here's some feedback from people who have attended.

Thank you Tamba we found the session with Sharon on Friday very valuable, we both left feeling very informed and also excited about what is ahead of us. We couldn't have asked for a more professional and knowledgeable person to guide us through certain worries we had."

"Both myself and my husband found the course with Sharon fantastic. Sharon was great and exceeded our expectations with valuable information. She covered everything we wanted to know and also things that we hadn't even though about."

"I found the course really useful. There was lots of great discussion and some really valuable information"

"Excellent course - I now feel reassured about coping. I would definitely recommend the course to others"

"The course was fantastic and I would highly recommend it. The course tutor was very knowledgeable and approachable and answered all of our questions. It was very informative."

"I attended Tamba's antenatal class and preparing for parenthood course and made some wonderful friends. We've supported each other through scary and worrying moments and there is always someone who is in the same boat to chat to at 3am. I'd highly recommend the courses to anyone interested in building a support network and receiving very practical information from people in the know."
