What’s on: Maternity courses & events

Twins and Multiples!

This course will run over 3 consecutive Saturdays, starting on the advertised date. In 2022 the course will be offered in August then again in November.

The best time to attend is during your 1st or 2nd trimester as birth planning takes place earlier with multiple babies. However please do book on if you can get all 3 sessions in before you expect your babies to arrive.

The sessions will provide an opportunity to meet other parents who are expecting more than one baby and find out about issues and further support specific to twins and multiples.

This course includes all the content of other sessions (labour & birth and nurturing & feeding) offered by Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Trust and  the multi agency courses run in Calderdale and Kirklees by Locala, so this is the only course you need to book.

Week 1: Twins explained, birth choices,  staying healthy in pregnancy.

Week 2: Birthing twins, what happens at a C-section, coping with labour, pain relief.

Week 3: Nurturing and feeding your babies, safe sleeping, premature babies, support after you take babies home. 

Covid-19 infection control measures will apply, including use of hand gel, wearing a face mask and social distancing whilst on the premises.
