Many people are intrigued by the idea of online classes delivered at a pace that suits their needs, in the convenience of their own home or workplace, but worry that this type of prenatal instruction is too unconventional. “Wouldn’t we be better off taking hospital course?”, you may be wondering.

Fear not! With Babies in Belly, you are in good hands!

“Is an online course going to be interactive enough?” you may be wondering.  The answer is YES!

simon alex side by sideOne of the reasons I began this business was because my husband and I felt that the prenatal classes we took while pregnant with Alex and Simon did not prepare us for the intense reality of life with twins.

Firstly, we didn’t really get anything from our classes that we hadn’t already read in a book somewhere.

Secondly, none of the hospital instructors were parents of multiples, so while we got a lot of good medical information, we didn’t hear an honest, heartfelt account of what it was REALLY going to be like, bringing home more than one newborn.  And while we enjoyed some of the activities presented in the course, there was a lot of “sit and git”, something I as a constructivist educator am totally opposed to!

By working through an online course at your own pace, you get the information YOU need, when you need it most!

You and your partner will watch videos, complete individual and cooperative exercises together, view visual and written content, and play interactive games.  You will love the flexibility of our classes: Each lesson takes anywhere from 10-30 minutes to complete,  so you and your partner can fit the classes into your day or week in a way that best suits your schedule.

The four sections of the course include lessons on many practical topics:

I. Introduction and Overview of Multiples-Pregnancy
Five highly engaging and interactive lessons ideal to complete
as soon as you find out you are carrying twins, triplets or more.

QuadrupletsII. Gear and Supplies
Includes strollers and more — great to complete
early in the second trimester, if possible.

III. Feeding: Breast, Bottle or Both?
Figure it out with 3 highly visual and comprehensive lessons!

IV. Birth and Beyond: Labour, Delivery and Bringing Babies Home
Managing bathtime with more than one baby, coping with crying,
organizing your volunteers, dealing with post-partem depression,
keeping the flame alive… 8 lessons to get you through the final weeks
of your pregnancy and into the first several months of Multiples parenthood!

Our FREE Bonus Section includes an informative handout on loving your preemies, tips and secrets shared by older parents of multiples, a Dad’s Corner and more….

Upon registration, you will be sent an email with a password good for 9 months of unlimited access to our “Members” section.  That’s FOUR CLASSES plus a FREE BONUS section, each full of individual lessons (over 20 lessons in total), jam-packed with important, timely and heartfelt information on managing your multiples pregnancy and preparing for the arrival of your twins, triplets or more!

You can sit and work for as long or short a time as is comfortable or possible for you in each session.

You can revisit specific lesson information at any time during the course, and of course, with BabiesInBelly, you always have access to the instructor by email any hour of the day or night.  In some cases, arranging a personal phone call is also a possibility.

…wade through the mounds of information out there about this politically and emotionally charged topic, so that YOU can decide what will work best for YOUR family!

• Are you concerned about finding a prenatal course that meets your needs as expectant parents of multiples?

• Are you having trouble finding classes that are close to home?

Save Time, Money, Heartache
and much emotional and physical Trauma…

…for both YOU and your multiple-birth children!

We were lucky; in Toronto, there are two to three twins-specific prenatal classes taught at the bigger downtown hospitals (though we still had to fight traffic and pay for parking!)

BabiesInBelly is accessible to you!

Discover a paradise of timely, relevant and practical parenting preparation in your own home, at the office, in a local cafe, or anywhere you and your partner have Internet access!

Questions you may have…

Isn’t a group class better because we will get to meet other people who are also expecting multiples?

Meeting and maintaining relationships with other POMs (”Parents of Multiples”) is vital to a successful parenting experience.

In the first section of the course, we’ll explore practical ways to do this online and in-person, and you will be supplied with local and national networks, resources and organizations that support families with twins, triplets and more.

Why do I need a multiples-specific prenatal class?  Can’t I just take any old prenatal class?

As you’ve probably already discovered if you are carrying more than one baby and have done a little reading, being pregnant with multiples is vastly different than carrying a singleton. There are different risks as well as deeper and broader levels of preparation required for carrying, birthing and raising multiple birth children.  A practical  approach to prenatal preparation, shared by someone who’s “been there” can help you increase your confidence as you await the arrival of your new babies.

You may also find that in a “regular” prenatal class, you are a bit of a circus act–everyone else either admires or pities you. This can become quite tiresome after the initial novelty wears off!  Our multiples-specific approach is geared specifically towards those expecting twins, triplets or more.

What’s the difference between “Babies in Belly” e-course and a hospital prenatal class?

BabiesInBelly consists of the following four sections, each broken down into just the right amount of information at a time, presented through engaging, interactive “lessons” or sub-topics:

checkmark Introduction
checkmarkGear and Supplies
checkmarkFeeding: Breast, Bottle or Both?
checkmarkBringing Babies Home

FREE Bonus Materials (Including “Dad’s Corner”, “Singleton Siblings” and more…)

That’s over 20 lessons, or approximately 10 hours of learning!

You will find that I cover many of the same topics as the hospital courses, but the topics are delivered with more of a personal touch, since I myself have experienced through the process of carrying, bearing and parenting multiples.  I also focus on more of a long-term vision of parenting multiples, since this challenge is one that does not end with labour and delivery.

Another thing I try to do differently than many hospital-based prenatal courses is to address contentious issues like feeding and diapering with a critical lense, and give you objective information about several options. This way you are better equipped to make choices that best meet the needs of your family.

As with any prenatal course, the information in my classes is intended for informational purposes only, and expectant families are encouraged to follow-up any specific medical concerns with their physician or OBGYN.

A hospital class sometimes offers a tour of the birthing unit. If you happen to be delivering at the hospital where you are taking the course, this can be quite helpful. However, know that you can book a hospital tour at your own neo-natal unit anytime, and need not be enrolled in any special course to do so.

How soon should we sign up for prenatal classes?

I recommend enrolling in BabiesInBelly course as soon as you find out you are pregnant with more than one, since Section One covers many pregnancy-related issues and answers most of the the “what’s it all about with twins/triplets/quads”-type questions.

The course then moves on to give you a good overview of all the gear and supplies you’ll need, so it’s a good idea to complete Section Two (”Gear and Supplies”) before you go shopping for all your “stuff”, usually sometime near the beginning of the second trimester (this allows for more time to plan and budget for what you’ll need).

The third section of the course addresses breast and bottle feeding, and Section Four deals primarily with baby care, sleep issues and other parenting matters, so it is useful to wait until the third trimester for this one. Since multiples frequently arrive early, I reccommend beginning sooner rather than later. Should you find yourself hospitalized early or on bedrest, your course is of course accessible bedside at home or hospital (provided you have Internet access).
