My story

[p]I am a twin and I have twins so it felt only natural to support a charity who improves the lives of thousands of families with twins, triplets or higher multiples. TAMBA (Twins and Multiple Births Association) is a the only UK wide charity who offer support groups to help parents (with bereavement, special needs, Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome), research into issues effecting families and carry out campaigning on their behalf. [/p][p]I was very lucky to have 2 healthy babies who came on time, who were a good weight and didn’t require time in SCBU. This was not the case for many of my friends who have multiples. Multiple pregnancies are far higher at risk of developing complications than Singleton pregnancies.[/p][p]twins have 6 times the risk of Cerebral Palsy[/p][p]twins are 4 times more likely to die during pregnancy [/p][p]expectant parents of multiples receive less help preparing for that journey ahead [/p][p]mums have twice the risk of developing post natal depression [/p][p]stress of raising multiples are complex including financial [/p][p]TAMBA is a small charity that can make a huge difference to families, so if you can spare a few pound to help me smash my total please donate! I have never run a Half Marathon before and it will be a challenge so any support is appreciated ❤?🥰[/p]
