Expectant Parents Meeting
For many members of WLAPOM this monthly informational meeting, warmly led by Jill Rosenberg & Shirley Kahen, is the meeting to attend prior to the arrival of your multiples.
It allows you and your family to meet other expectant families, and be guided sensitively through the basics of what to expect during this exciting and often challenging time.
The meeting flows with your questions, and covers a broad range of topics including schedules, essential equipment, sleep (both yours and the babies), nursing/feeding, pediatricians, types of help you'll need and so much more. You’ll also hear ‘pro tips’ from other members attending - and can expect a considerate and positive range of opinions on all subjects.
The Expectant Parent group is a wonderful introduction to WLAPOM and is for anyone expecting multiples. Membership is not required prior to the meeting (members and non-members are welcome). It’s always free - and you can attend more than once.
Moms, dads, significant others/partners, single parents, adopting parents, surrogate parents - all are welcome!
