If you have clicked here, you may already be home with your twins, or perhaps in the first few days or weeks of parenthood, looking for some support and/or advice.

Many newborn twins need to spend some vital time on neo-natal special care wards for a short duration and these are tough times for all parents. Don’t despair; you've come to the right place! What is more, if you live in our local area, we hope that this website will provide everything you need to know and we would be delighted if you would like to join our multiple families community!  

To join our Twin group is FREE!!! We rely solely on donations so please feel free to use the donate button at the bottom of this page to help support other twin families and to enable us to continue this group.  

We have a very Active couple of Facebook sites which you are welcome to join as long as you live within the BH postal code area and as long as you have twins/triplets or are currently expecting them.  

"Bournemouth and District Twin Club"   and    "Bmouth Twin Club Sale Site"
