Supporting families with multiples
Multiple birth families experience unique challenges that require specialist care. Twins Trust works with midwives and other healthcare professionals across the UK to support these families
The charity Twins Trust estimates that there are fewer than 100 multiple births midwives across the UK, despite there being usually around 10 000 multiple births each year (Office for National Statistics, 2023). Multiple births specialist midwives work with Twins Trust to make sure that parents-to-be are provided with the best care throughout their pregnancy and birth.
More than 40 years ago, the charity was born to support families with twins, triplets and more. Twins Clubs Association was founded in 1978, later renamed TAMBA (Twins and Multiple Births Association); it became Twins Trust (2019) in 2019.
Twins Trust is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to improving the lives of families with multiples. The charity has been there for thousands of families since it started and today, support is still very much at the heart of its work. Services are made to suit families' needs, and staff have a wealth of experience to guide parents from the early stages of pregnancy right through to adulthood and beyond.
