I offer specific breastfeeding support for twin and triplets families. I am founder and Trustee of the charity Breastfeeding Twins and Triplets UK and through that we offer education and support for parents, health care professionals and breastfeeding supporters. I have breastfed twins myself so have first hand experience of the difficulties and overwhelm experienced by many families. I have now supported literally thousands of parents to breastfeed their twins or triplets, either face to face or online and via the charity Breastfeeding Twins and Triplets UK. These families can be dealing with premature birth, early birth, latching issues, supply issues or just need some support around tandem feeding, feeding plans and generally how to cope with more than one. Or sometimes they just need a safe place to rant!
My book “Breastfeeding Twins and Triplets; a Guide for Professionals and Parents” is available to buy at all good book stores and from Jessica Kingsley Publications
I have a website specifically about breastfeeding twins and triplets here. Please take a look and read the blogs.
The charity’s Facebook group is the first port of call for most people when they find out they are expecting more than one baby. It is overseen by myself and a team of trained breastfeeding peer supporters, all multiple birth parents themselves. You can find it here. It is restricted to UK or Ireland based families due to our health care system. Please answer the 3 joining questions. For those outside of the UK there are several other International Facebook groups.
I offer antenatal breastfeeding education specifically designed for multiple birth families via videocall. Please indicate it is the multiple birth option when you book. You may book a package with antenatal support and a postnatal home visit or videocall. This would make a great gift from a member of the family.
I specialise in post natal breastfeeding support for multiple birth families, preferably in your home or at my fortnightly group clinic. I can also give support via videocall if you are not local to me. In this scenario sending videos of babies latching in advance of the session can be useful so I can see really well, and in case the babies do not behave themselves on the day!
Please visit my Breastfeeding Support page for details, or just book here
