You CAN Breastfeed Your Twins

By Glenni Lorick, IBCLC  
About eighteen months ago, Svenja and Andrew came to my Breastfeeding Multiples class on a Saturday morning. Not too long afterwards they gave birth to their twins. Svenja was determined to breastfeed them, and 16 months later they are still happily nursing. Despite having a C-Section and feeling like her milk was a bit delayed in coming in, Svenja was committed to giving her babies as much breastmilk as possible. When a nurse who understood her reluctance to give any formula to her babies suggested the possibility of donor milk, Svenja knew she had found a solution that would work for her.

Recently Svenja sat down with me to talk about her breastfeeding adventure. If you know anyone who is expecting twins, be sure that they watch this terrific video! We offer our Breastfeeding Multiples class the first Saturday of each month at 10:00. The cost is just $20, and you will leave with the knowledge you need and the confidence that you, too, can nurse your twins!
