Twinfo is Australia's largest, most supportive, online community for parents of twins, triplets or more. We offer advice, suport, products and services that make raising your babies easier, freeing you up to enjoy all the precious moments.
Being a parent of multiples means you are raising two (or more) children simultaneously in a singleton world. Our service providers all understand this (many of them have multiples themselves) and are here to help guide you.
My name is Naomi, and I am one of the 4,560 women who gave birth to multiples in Australia in 2011. I like to think that I have the best job in the world – being the mother to two of the craziest twins around, Alexis and Oliver, who are nearly 9. I’ve also got a long suffering partner, Dave, who generally goes along with most of my crazy ideas in life.
No doubt you were like us and had pre-conceived ideas about how you would raise your child. Then you found out that that there was more than one and the panic set in. I’m not going to lie, being a parent is hard and being a parent to multiples can be doubly or triply hard. But being a multiple birth parent is also truly amazing. I’ve been there, done that and got the t-shirt (or grey hairs!) and the laughter lines to prove it.
We are now out of the “haze” and have made it through to the other side (just!). As a family we love to travel. Dave’s dream is to drive overland from Hong Kong to England, seeing and experiencing amazing people, places and culture. Mine is to live in Asia, by the water and assimilate into the laid back culture, where we can grow, share our lives and just be a family.
