Event description
This is an additional workshop for those couples expecting twins or more.

About this Event

This program is tailored to meet the learning needs of the couple expecting TWINS or more. It is expected that participants have already attended or plan to attend another Childbirth and Parenting Education program. However, if you have other children this may be all you need to gain some extra knowledge on dealing with more than one. The workshop provides information on understanding your baby’s needs, settling techniques, home safety and equipment, handling and care of baby, and becoming a family.

This interactive course will be presented face to face in the education block at Westmead Hospital. You do have the option to attend this course online through Zoom from home. However we encourage you to attend face to face to get most out of the program.

The workshop is discounted for those attending the Evening or the Saturday/Sunday Positive Birth and Parenting Workshop. You need to include your booking number when completing the registration page. 

Discounted rate $35 for booked to give birth at Westmead Hospital. Full price rate is $60 for women birthing elsewhere.

Parents-to-be of twins are encouraged to commence this class before 34 weeks gestation if possible. Videos specific to multiple birth and parenting are shown.

 Topics include:

  • What to expect with multiples
  • Breastfeeding more than one
  • Parenting issues – including postnatal depression, returning to work, roles and identities.
  • Caring for your new babies and any others
  • Opportunity for questions and discussion
  • Finding out what help is available in the community
  • Meet other couples expecting more than one.
