This highly popular course is an essential 'Must Attend' for every expectant multiples parent, grandparent or care giver. The cost is just £6 per person (£9 in Central London).

Practical Parenting Webinar 

In this 2 hour seminar we will share with you:

  • What makes multiple birth pregnancies different from singleton pregnancies
  • What equipment is essential for multiples families
  • Why organising support for when you get home is important and how it will help you cope better in the early days - we will provide an overview of available options
  • Tips on how to make your time in hospital as positive as possible - even if your babies arrive early
  • Insights on how newborn babies sleep so you can be better prepared for the challenges ahead
  • Multiple birth babies are more likely to be born early - in this presentation we will share tips that can help you prepare for this possibility
  • Top tips to help take the stress out of changing/bathing more than one baby and coping with crying
  • Research has shown that parents who get out and about with their babies are less isolated and better able to cope emotionally.  We share top tips on getting out and about
  • What feeding options are available and how to go about it (breast, bottle and mixed)

Please note that the seminar does not cover the birth or any medical information - if you are interested in learning about the birth our one day Ante-Natal course may be of interest to you.
