Calling All Parents Of Twins!
With twin birth on the rise and social media making an impact on how people use the web (think, Facebook), it makes sense that online communities catering to parents of twins have popped up. Now, parents from all over the world who have or are expecting twins can connect with eachother, lend support, give advice and offer friendship. How cool is that! It's so helpful to be able to talk to others who can relate to twin pregnancy and the unique job of raising twins. Instead of only having a handful of other twin parents in your neighborhood (if even that), you have the opportunity to meet hundreds. It's the main reason that Twin-Pregnancy-And-Beyond.com started the
MY Twin Pregnancy And Beyond Social Network
But, we're not the only ones! There are a few really great networks you can join and/or follow. Luckily, we had the opportunity to interview the co-founder of the Multiples and More Blog Network...Be sure to read about our Featured Mom below to find out more.
If you are currently pregnant with your twins or already have them, you will appreciate all of the information and help available!

This month's featured mom has some blogs you won't want to miss!
1) WHAT IS YOUR BUSINESS AND/OR WEBSITE/BLOG?
I have two blogs, my personal blog is Twice the love...half the sleep and the other blog is Multiples and More Blog Network that I run with my friend Lani who is a MoM of triplets.
2) HOW DID YOU DECIDE ON THIS BUSINESS OR SUBJECT?
The Multiples and More blog was really created out of our need to connect with other MoM's (Mothers of Multiples) and Dad's. There are a ton of websites out there, but we wanted a one stop shop where you could find interviews, articles and product reviews that related to you.
3) WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT THIS BUSINESS OR SUBJECT?
There are a ton of perks with hosting a blog network! We have the opportunity to meet so many MoM's and Dad's, not just in the US, but worldwide. We also get to talk with some amazing experts on just about any topic you can think of. Besides all of those perks, we get to connect with other MoM's and Dad's and give them the information that they are looking for. I know this sounds cheesy and cliche, but I love reading the comments/e-mails from our readers, to me that means we are successful.
4) DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT ANY SPECIAL PROMOS, PRODUCTS, DEALS, OR OTHER TOPICS?
There's always something new and exciting going on, so Check It Out!
5) TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOU, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR TWINS AND HOW YOU MANAGE IT ALL.
I'm originally from the Chicagoland area and moved to Florida about 4 years ago. My husband and I met in 2003 at Disney World and were married in 2006 at the very place that we met. After our 1 year anniversary we decided to start trying and were exstatic when we discovered we were pregnant. At the 7 week appointment we found out we were having twins and our whole world changed in that moment (all for the good!)! Our twins were born on May 5, 2008 a few hours before my scheduled C-Section and have been just as unpredictable ever since! Sometimes I feel like I'm going to lose my mind with everything that is going on, but that's normal,right?
6) ANY ADVICE OR INSPIRING WORDS FOR OTHER MOMS?
When I was in high school my parents gave me this advice, and it's something that I have had on me at all times. I read it whenever I feel overwhelmed or just need a word of encouragement (it's long so bare with me): Live each day to the fullest. Get the most from each hour, each day, and each age of your life. Then you can look forward with confidence, and back without regrets. Be yourself but be your best self. Dare to be different and to follow your own star. And don't be afraid to be happy. Enjoy what is beautiful. Love with all your heart and soul. Believe that those you love, love you. Forget what you have done for your friends, and remember what they have done for you. Disregard what the world owes you, and concentrate on what you owe the world. When you are faced with a decision, make that decision as wisely as possible - then forget it. The moment of absolute certainty never arrives. And above all, remember that God helps those who help themselves. Act as if everything depeneded upon you, and pray as if everything depended upon God.
