Description

Twiniversity is thrilled to bring our tried and true twins classes to the Windy City! Expecting twins classes are now open for registration for expecting and new parents of twins and higher order multiples living in the Chicago area. Our twins classes will prepare you for everything you need to know BEFORE the twins arrive (including what you need to buy!) and AFTER the twins arrive through their first 6 months of life. It’s the perfect way to get ready to bring home your dynamic duo!

All classes are taught by Twiniversity Dean of Parents, Julie Burt Nichols.


Twiniversity expecting twins classes are perfect for…

  • New families who just found out they are expecting two or more. (The ideal time to take the 101 class is between 24-34 weeks pregnant)
  • Families who already have a child and are NOW expecting twins and want to know what the differences will be.
  • Families who have had their twins and need help with figuring out the fine-tuning of parenting newborns (sleep schedules, feeding issues, interacting with the twins).

During this three hour lecture, Julie will highlight all the important information you need to get you well on your way in preparing your home, yourself, and your relationship for the upcoming arrival of your twins including:
