Twins and Multiple Births : The Essential Parenting Guide from Pregnancy to Adulthood Paperback
by Carol Cooper
Having more than one baby at once can test the endurance of even the most calm and experienced parents.
This inspiring and enlightening parenting guide, by a practising GP and mother of twins, will be welcomed by all parents of twins who find that the standard baby and childcare guides fall short of their special needs.
With statistics on multiple births and useful resources, as well as information on topics such as: fertility treatment, advances in prenatal medicine and surgery, feeding, schooling and looking after sick twins, this book offers first-hand professional, practical and emotional advice to help parents cope with the development and rearing of twins from conception to adulthood.
Particular emphasis is placed on the relationship between twins as individuals as they grow up, their relationship with others both inside and outside the family, and sibling rivalry.
Also incorporating standard information on pregnancy, birth, what to expect and how the process differs from single births, this is an essential, enlightening and often amusing guide for every parent of twins.

'Insightful and often painfully amusing reading' Your Health magazine. 'Splendid - just what was needed' Multiple Births Association.
