This quarter’s NCT Perspective explores the differences between women expecting multiple births and those who are expecting one. NCT Tutor and Antenatal Tutor, Laura Jarman, gives her view.
According to research, featured in the latest issue, there is currently no intrapartum care guidelines for multiple births.
Laura Jarman organised a Twins and Multiples Workshop, which proved useful for two sets of parents who were expecting twins- Nadine and Paul Saunders and Abi and Adrian Wood
Speaking to NCT Perspective, Abi said: “Although you can relate to it all I find [friends with single babies] don’t want to talk about how hard it is because they’ve only got one, and vice versa, I don’t want to say how tough it is for me going through pregnancy because every pregnancy is different.”
Also featured in the issue is cultural awareness and maternity care for NCT Practitioners.
