In today's episode, we're talking about being a mother of MULTIPLES.
In this episode, I’ll share my conversation with Amber De’Neise - she’s a toddler mom to twin girls, and is based out of Northern Ontario, Canada. It was SO interesting for me to hear about her journey into first-time motherhood…only with TWICE the fun!! This was a really eye-opening interview, and we cover so many different topics - including everything from Amber’s must-haves for mothers of multiples, to the difficult infertility journey she and her partner navigated. I hope you learn as much from this conversation as I did!
Later in the episode, you’ll hear from more mothers of multiples of a variety of ages, as they share pieces of their personal motherhood journeys….these clips discuss everything from the joys and surprises they’ve encountered raising multiples, to the struggles they’ve overcome (or are currently facing), to their tips and the lessons they've learned along the way!
To adapt the commonly used expression, it takes a VILLAGE to raise a child….and a MUCH BIGGER VILLAGE to raise 2, 3, or MORE at the same time!
