Managing Multiples Prenatal Class (Twins and More Prenatal Class)

The Twins Plus Association of Brampton is offering the Managing Multiples Prenatal Class four times a year! Wether you are having twins, tripets, quadruplets or more - this is the class for you!! With us you will gain the confidence and knowledge you will need to get through the pregnancy and care for all your children after they are home. Being pregnant with multiples can be exciting and scary all at the same time - we have been there! The moms that teach the class are moms of twins and triplets and can help you navigate through the emotions and teach you the skills you need to be parents to multiples.

We stress that our class in not a “Medical” Prenatal Class – although we will be discussing some medical terms and what medical surprises to expect and also what to be on the lookout for in a multiples pregnancy. We will be discussing everything from the pregnancy to after you bring the babies home...
