How I Can Help
Many new parents of twins aren’t prepared for life with two babies.
I can help you use the time during your pregnancy to plan, organize, and prepare yourself emotionally for your TWO new arrivals!
I offer hourly personal consulting by phone/Skype/Facetime at a rate of $95.00 per hour. We can talk about anything you may need advice on or help with, including your pregnancy, your twins, and/or parenting.
I am also available for home visits (with a 3-hour minimum) at a rate of $195.00 per hour. Depending on your location, additional travel costs may apply. These visits are more personal and I offer these for unique cases in which extra care and effort is necessary.
Preparation is Key!
The only difference between a confident parent of twins and an anxious, worried parent is knowledge and preparedness. Being as prepared as possible with a plan for how to deal with the myriad of issues you’ll face is crucial to surviving and thriving with your twins!
Prenatal and Postnatal Services
Keeping your cool and not panicking when confronted with new and stressful situations with infant twins is half the battle. I offer personalized planning and advice that is tailored to your specific family needs. There is no one-size-fits-all method for every family – and single parents have different needs than families with two parents. Our services can help you mentally and emotionally prepare for twins by:
Focusing on your needs as a new mom or dad
Discussing in detail what to expect in the first few months & how to handle specific situations
Preparing your home for twins
Personal shopping to prepare for your twins’ arrival
Advice on getting out and about with twins
Assistance for expecting mothers on bed-rest
Setting up your support group – pediatricians, babysitters, etc.
Adjusting to your new life with twins
Preparing for the possibility of NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) and what to expect
Scheduling feedings and sleep, while fitting in some sleep for yourself!
Emotional support and strategies for coping during difficult times
After discussing your concerns I’ll develop a personalized plan to help you prepare for the arrival of your twins.
Specific Concerns for Single Parents
Raising twins alone is not for the faint of heart. You will become a multi-tasker extraordinaire! My specialty is preparing and assisting single parents and single parents-to-be for the unique challenges of raising twins alone.
