Congratulations from Twins Research Australia on your happy news. No doubt you are keen to find out as much as possible about twin pregnancy, birth and the early days of parenting. TRA is delighted to be of help as you begin this wonderful journey.

Many expecting parents find they are overwhelmed by the amount of information available, especially on the internet, and are unsure what is accurate and relevant for them. As Australia’s only national twin research institute based at the world-renowned University of Melbourne, we are committed to providing evidence-based information and guidance to multiple-birth parents.

Our new ‘Twin pregnancy and parenthood’ website is produced by Twins Research Australia in conjunction with health professionals and multiple birth parents. It contains helpful information about twins and multiples, and what to expect when your babies are home. You can request free access to the website via the link below.

The dedicated twin pregnancy website includes the same information contained in our free downloadable Twin Pregnancy booklet – plus more! We will send you an email with your exclusive access details, and also include a link to the booklet which is available in an online format only.

These free resources include:
