Readers Respond: Ways to Get Ready for the Birth of Twins

Responses: 1


Updated January 27, 2011

During the months of twin pregnancy, there are some things you can do to prepare for welcoming twins to the family. Getting a head start will make things a little bit easier once your twins are born. What advice would you give to expectant twin parents about how to prepare for twins? How did you get ready for the birth of twins?

Put everything together early!

We got a ton of "stuff" for my twins' shower that needed to be assembled -- swings, bouncy seats, strollers, etc. My best friend, who has triplets, told me to take one thing a day and put it together. It helped to pass the time when I was home by myself on maternity leave and it helped to build the excitement of the babies coming. Put all of it together early because there will be no time when the babies get here!
