Welcome To Twin Talk!

When Amber and I each found out we were pregnant with twins, we began the eternal search for information.  It took about a week to realize it was a lost cause.  Pregnancy books devoted a paragraph to twins and most of the information online was outdated.

We quit the search and put away the books.  It was frustrating and scary to walk into a brand new adventure feeling so unready and alone.  Halfway through our pregnancies, Amber and I met through our personal blogs and began following each other's journeys.  We found reassurance in one another as we were going through the same experiences at the same time.  We understood what it was like to get wide-eyed looks at the grocery store, "Are they natural?" questions from complete strangers, and the financial strain of buying two of everything.

We wanted a place for all twin moms to connect like we did.  And then we each had two newborn babies and didn't sleep for three months (who are we kidding, it was at least six... or twelve).  Throughout our twins' first year, Amber and I regularly texted and emailed.  We shared tips, tricks, and encouragement from one twin mom to another.  Fellow twin moms began reading our blogs, seeking advice and, most of all, support.

Right around the time our twins turned one I told Amber my desire to start a blog where twin moms could go for infor
mation and encouragement.  Amber was on board immediately and together we've spent the last few months putting this plan into action.

While we'll share everything we've learned thus far, we want Twin Talk to be a place where everyone can contribute.  The intent of this blog is simple: Twin moms supporting one another.  Whether that be through blog posts, twin birth stories, or giveaways (we'd love to support small businesses owned and run by other twin moms!), there is finally a place for us.  Written by us. 

And we could not be more excited! 

This afternoon we'll announce our very first giveaway on Instagram!  Please share Twin Talk with anyone you know who has (or is expecting) twins.  You can also find us on Instagram (@twintalkblog), Facebook, and Pinterest.  And don't forget to follow us on Bloglovin!We're TWIN moms. And this is where we TALK about it.

  1. So excited to stalk, I mean follow you ladies on IG, FB, Pinterest and on Bloglovin! 😘 My girls are 13 months old and I don't have and have never had a twin mom support group in my area. I've always depended on the wonderful MoMs I've met on IG and FB. So glad to have another place to come to for help.

I found you through a bunch of twin Moms that I follow on Instagram, you can follow me (emilydcall). I have 6 month old boy/girl twins. I have 5 children so life is a little crazy! I cannot wait for ideas and tips... twins are a whole different ballgame. Ha ha.
