TWINS LAMAZE CLASS!!

 

OVERVIEW
Our TWINS Lamaze Class is designed especially to help prepare parents of twins (and multiples) for the big adjustment of growing a family exponentially!  Our focus in this class is not so much on natural childbirth preparation (parents are encouraged to take the regular Lamaze classes for that component), but on special issues relating to twins or multiples pregnancy, birth, and parenting.  Topics include:
Discussing optimal nutrition for twin pregnancy & postpartum;
Exploring how to prolong pregnancy and optimizing conditions for preventing preterm birth;
Understanding special issues related to preterm birth;
Learning the basics of twin birth through focused questions and answers on both vaginal and cesarean birth;
Preparing for mother’s healing after vaginal or cesarean birth;
Feeding twins: preparation for breastfeeding, tandem nursing, bottle feeding and more;
Boding with twins, the amazing infant brain, and integrating with other siblings;
Practicing newborn care strategies (like diapering, burping, calming, and holding two at a time);
Maintaining the couples’ relationship following twin birth (“What about us?”) and understanding the needs of dads (“What about him?”);
Grasping tricks of the trade: advice from experienced twin parents;
Building a network of support!
