Learning you're expecting twins isn't always the easiest to manage.
You'd been planning for one baby and still can't seem to wrap your head around the fact that you're preparing for two. You wonder how you'll ever manage caring for two babies and cringe at the thought of the sleep deprivation that awaits. You worry how you'll afford everything, from child care to baby gear, and you're terrified of how in the world your body will carry twins.
All these worries have made you not as excited about having twins, and it doesn't help that everything seems to be happening so quickly.
I can relate.
I had just received news in my doctor’s office when she handed me a pamphlet. It contained information I was supposed to know, which boiled down to all the complications and everything terrible that could go wrong. I didn’t understand half the things in that pamphlet and felt more confused, worried and anxious than ever.
I wanted to rip that pamphlet to shreds.
You see, in that moment, I felt terrified about having twins. I didn’t want to hear about every complication I could potentially face the next several months.
Yes, it’s important to be informed, and complications do happen. But I was also anxious about this new stage, worried sick about everything and couldn’t bear the thought of any more negativity.
At the same time, I knew I needed to learn a thing or two about twins. This was new territory for me, after all. But I wanted to learn in a way that wouldn’t scare me even further or didn’t seem so dire.
I wish I had practical information to guide me through all the lingo and tell me exactly what I needed to do to get me through this pregnancy. I also wanted encouragement, someone to tell me it’ll be all right, that it may not be as bad as I was imagining it to be and that I can get through this.
And so I created Expecting Twins: The Ultimate Guide to Preparing and Caring for Newborn Twins. This is the guide I wish I had read in my doctor’s office when I first learned the news, not that scary pamphlet. It’s what I would’ve told myself knowing what I know now.
Through the guidance you'll find in the book, the nerves and anxieties will make their way into confidence and preparation. All your "what if's" and "Can I really do this?" questions will be answered, from a realistic mom's experience (no scary lingo here). You'll feel better prepared to handle the costs, manage your emotions, and care for two babies.
And most importantly, you'll see the positive sides of having twins. No more worries about complications or doubts about whether you can do this. Now you can enjoy your pregnancy the way you always wanted to.

I didn’t know a whole lot of twin parents when I learned I was expecting twins. I always felt outnumbered by other “regular” singleton pregnancies. I couldn’t complain about the backache I was feeling because I was only 16 weeks along, and no one really got me when I said I was tired.
So I created a private Facebook group called All About Twins. These folks are fellow twin parents and range in their journey from those still pregnant to those whose twins are well beyond the infant stage. Membership is through invitation only.
I don’t want you to go through your twin pregnancy alone, or feel like you can’t ask me or other twin parents questions you may have. I created a community so you’ll always have a place to vent, ask, celebrate and talk all things twins.
I know all too well how overwhelming it can feel to hear the news of expecting twins and not know where to start. Through thorough research, life experience and practical, real-life advice, I'll help you prepare for your twins' arrival and feel more confident in the process. The Expecting Twins Guide and Workbook are filled with honest and actionable tips to guide you through your pregnancy and beyond.
