Description

Edinburgh & Lothians Twins & Multiples Club is a registered charity that offers a wide range of support to families expecting or parenting twins, triplets and higher order multiples in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Our objective is to provide our members with information and a network of multiple birth families, thereby helping them to give their children the best start in life.

We are run by our members for our members.

40 years of supporting our members

Edinburgh & Lothians Twins & Multiples Club has its roots in the summer of 1978 when six twin mothers met in an Edinburgh living room. Today, we count more than 550 parents of multiples among our members and are at the forefront of supporting the needs of these families in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

We are affiliated to Tamba (The Twins & Multiple Births Association), which aims to save lives and support multiple birth families throughout the UK.

WHAT WE PROVIDE

- A supportive, non-judgemental environment where multiple parents/carers receive the support of their peers
- Antenatal classes to prepare expectant parents for the birth and early days of caring for multiples
- Breastfeeding support via our antenatal classes and tandem feeding cushion loan scheme
- Active virtual communities, online support and information through Facebook and Twitter
- Bumps, babies and toddler groups that give the opportunity for parents to meet others in similar situations and for multiple birth children and their siblings to play
- A calendar of social events and activities for parents of multiples and their families
- A Facebook buying/selling page of pre-loved multiple specific clothing and equipment to help with the cost of raising multiples
