Single Parent Support
Being a parent of twins isn't easy; being a single parent of twins is even harder. As a single parent of twin girls I have found the Multiples Canterbury an invaluable source of friendship, advice and information. I first joined when I was pregnant and found the meetings and antenatal classes very helpful. I've had plenty of experience I can offer lots of advice and tips on how to cope as well as some information on where to get help if needed. Sometimes it's just knowing there's someone to ring which can make all the difference.

Direct support from an experienced feeder. Ellen is breastfeeding peer support councillor for the Mother4Mother programme. I have 3 children, my eldest Isabelle and 16month old twins Zoey and Sophie. I made the choice to become involved with breastfeeding support after my feeding experience with my singleton, I was diagnosed with Igt (insufficient glandular tissue) meaning I do not possess the breast tissue to produce a full milk supply. After a long struggle of pumping, supplementing and trying to make it all work i got to 1 year feeding my eldest. I successfully mix fed my twins for 4 months. I have been a breastfeeding support councillor for 5 years now. I can give advice or refer to a lactation consultant.
