Twins Support Group
Parents of twins, or other multiples, are welcome to join our weekly support group devoted to families twins held every Friday from 10:30 am to 11:30 am in our office. The group is a place to share concerns, questions, and experiences about parenting (and surviving) twin infants.
Cathy Peters, the group leader, is a certified lactation consultant and can also work on an individual basis with mothers nursing twins. Parents also learn from each other and exchange tips. Favorite topics for the group include sleep, colic, infant crying and feedings, and developmental milestones as they pertain to twins.
The newborn group is a wonderful time for parents to meet other parents of twins. The group is a bonding experience; mothers (and fathers too!) often meet outside of class to socialize and provide support to each other. Unlike the newborn support group, where newborns graduate to the 3 to 6 month zone, the twins support group includes infants from birth to one year of age. This speaks to the wonderful support and community parents of twins find in our group as they share the joys and challenges of a multiple birth.
Twins Support Group Meetings are every Friday from 10:30 am – 11:30 am at the Westport office. There is no charge and no appointment is necessary. We also welcome any questions from mothers of multiples who are expecting and will be joining our practice.
