Over on our other website, rookiemoms.com, we're celebrating Twins Week to share the tips, tricks, memoirs, and favorite gear recommendations from and to parents of multiples. As parents of singletons, it's been really fun to read these articles.
If you're a local parent to multiples, I'm sure you already know about Twins by the Bay as a great resource for face-to-face support and gear swaps.
Twins by the Bay is a non-profit support group for parents of multiples in Oakland, Berkeley and the surrounding area. Its mission is to educate, support and assist parents in the raising of multiple-birth children.
Member benefits include a Preemie Closet, the use of loaner equipment and costumes, the New and Expectant Parent Support Group, newsletter, national and regional club membership, information sharing and much more. See member benefits for details.
Support groups happen during both daytime and evening hours to accommodate the needs of parents on different schedules. All groups currently meet at Bananas in Oakland. As of August 2011, dues will be $45/year.
Make sure to stop by Twins Week to participate in the fun.
