"When our OB/GYN told us we were pregnant with twins we already had two toddlers at home, so our time was limited. We needed the facts ... and quick!
Double Happiness Multiplied is the perfect solution for busy parents-to-be wanting to know what to expect with their little bundles of joy.
I really appreciate the illustrations explaining exactly how multiples are conceived and continue to grow within the womb and after birth. It's not only helpful for parents, but the figures can also help educate your children once they are older and want to know, "Mommy, where did we come from?"
As a parent of twins, Sally does a great job of asking the experts questions most moms and dads want to know.
There can be many challenges when you're pregnant with multiples and merging stories from real parents alongside the medical explanations helps families personally relate to these conditions so they're better prepared."
