Surprise! You’ve found out you’re not just having one … you’re expecting two or three or more! While discovering you’re carrying multiples can be incredibly exciting, we understand it can feel a bit overwhelming too.

But, every family is different.

That’s why the Texas Children's® Pavilion for Women offers a private consultation class to prepare you and your family for your upcoming journey with multiples. The information covered during this one-hour, individual consultation is customized to your specific questions and needs. Topics can include, but are not limited to:

  • Pregnancy, birth and recovery after a pregnancy with multiples
  • Medical care during a multiple pregnancy
  • Tools to cope with bed rest
  • Special medical care that may be required for your babies after birth
  • Breastfeeding multiples
  • Getting help and support at home
  • Scheduling with multiples
  • Sibling considerations
  • Resources for parents of multiples at the Pavilion for Women, in the community and online
