Updated in 2013 with the latest statistics and guidelines, this inspiring and enlightening parenting guide is for all parents of twins or more. It’s written by a practising GP and mother of twins who seamlessly combines her medical know-how with first-hand experience of having more than one baby at once.
With statistics on multiple births and useful resources, as well as information on topics such as: fertility treatment, advances in prenatal medicine and surgery, feeding, schooling and looking after sick twins, this book offers first-hand professional, practical and emotional advice to help parents cope with the development and rearing of twins from conception to adulthood. Particular emphasis is placed on the relationship between twins as individuals as they grow up, their relationship with others both inside and outside the family, and sibling rivalry.
Also incorporating standard information on pregnancy, birth, what to expect and how the process differs from single births, this is an essential, enlightening and often amusing guide for every parent of twins.
