One of the best pieces of advice I could give you as you take this wonderful journey called twin pregnancy is to find a support group or a club near you. Joining one, even an online community of expecting mothers can be really helpful.
Sure, you can always call your doctor or midwife every time you need to ask something that bothers you because they are used to it. However, there would be times that you need an instant answer to ease your worries and it is too late to call the doctor’s office or no one is there to entertain your call. The best option is to turn to other pregnant women who have experienced the same struggles, stresses, worries, and anxieties for some reassurance to ease your mind.
There is no specific time as to when you should join a support group. The decision is entirely up to you. Some women start to look and join a club or online community when they begin trying for a baby. While others join as soon as they find out they are pregnant. Sometimes, it also helps to join a specific group that is in the same situation as you are.
For instance, if you are pregnant with twins or multiples, it is better to join a twin pregnancy support group than a regular group for expecting mothers. That way, you can get the best answers and solutions to questions and problems that you are worried about from other mothers of twin support groups.
Aside from what has mentioned above, there are other obvious reasons why you should join twin pregnancy support groups. Here are some of them.
