Twin Parenting Classes

Twin Parenting Classes

twiniversity classes logo
As the pregnant and new mom’s meeting leader for eight years with the Manhattan Twins Club, Natalie Diaz has created a series of classes compiling families most-asked questions and most common discussions. She includes a variety of opinions in the class, including her own, but the goal is to have families leave each class knowing the choices they have so THEY can decide which one is best for them.
twins classes“We wanted to share our deepest gratitude for Natalie and her class. We are first time parents to 4 week old twins. We don’t have a lot of family in New York City, so as we were preparing for parenthood, we were pretty shaky. I remember walking out of Natalie’s class a new man! We said to ourselves, WE CAN DO THIS.
Natalie’s advice and education is priceless and as time is passing every tip or piece advice she gave us has proven to be dead-on! Any expecting parent of twins should take theses two classes! ” Love, Eric, Asaf, Oz and Amalia.

Classes are starting up in Chicago this November! Click here for more details!

twins classesTwiniversity parenting classes are ideal for:

– New families who just found out they are expecting two or more. (The ideal time to take the 101 class is between 24-34 weeks pregnant).
– Families who already have a child and are NOW expecting twins and want to know what the differences will be.
– Families who have had their twins and need help with figuring out the fine-tuning of parenting your kids (sleep schedules, feeding issues, interacting with the twins).
– Families who don’t have the time to register and prepare for the children (Twiniversity will register FOR you and help plan your nursery).
