What do you say when you're pregnant and they tell you "There's a pair in there?" "Heeeeeeelp!" When these two authors discovered they were having twins, both had the same thought once they recovered from the shock: buy a book that explains what to expect in order to get organised and to prepare emotionally and physically for the anticipated upheaval to their lives. When they couldn't find such a text, they decided to write it themselves. Based on their own and other twin parents' experiences of pregnancy, birth and twin toddlers, Katrina and Louise offer sound practical advice that is backed up by medical practitioners and health professionals where relevant. Detailed information with user-friendly explanations of medical jargon is peppered with amusing and moving stories of catastrophe, chaos and coping. There are at-a-glance hints and tips at the end of each chapter and easy-reference tables of information throughout.
