Parenting websites are plentiful in today’s world, but how many are devoted exclusively to parenting twins? When Natalie Diaz, a mom of twins could not find an online community with support, resources, or helpful information specifically for parenting twins, she created one herself! Today Twiniversity offers everything from online classes and books to informative Facebook chats and timely articles.
What’s more, they will be at the 2017 Chicago Baby Show, on August 26 and 27, at Navy Pier, when the nation’s largest show for expectant and new families comes to Chicagoland. A family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler – from top products to trusted parenting experts – the Chicago Baby Show will welcome thousands of expectant and new parents from Chicago, the surrounding suburbs, and beyond!
Tickets to the Chicago Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual.
We spoke with a member of the Twiniversity team, to learn more about the brand and what new parents can expect at the Chicago Baby Show.
For someone unfamiliar with Twiniversity, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
Twiniversity is the #1 global support network and educational resource solely for parents of multiples. Twiniversity offers free daily content, weekly giveaways, private forums, expecting twins classes, video reviews and Q&As, online community, and the bestselling twins book, “What to Do When You’re Having Two”, by Twiniversity founder Natalie Diaz.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
After Natalie Diaz had her twins in 2004, she was shocked by the lack of resources available to families of multiples. Magazines, websites, and television shows all seemed to focus on “singleton” families. As a full time mom, Natalie vowed that once her twins started Kindergarten, if no one had started giving twin families access to more information, she would do it herself. So proudly in the fall of 2009, after no one had organized twin parents, Natalie got on a soap box and started a twin parenting revolution called Twiniversity. She wanted to make one website that parents of multiples could turn to for information and community. With the mission of connecting, educating and making parents see the comical side of having twins, Twiniversity succeeds tenfold.
What are the most popular and/or newest programs/services from Twiniversity?
Online expecting twins classes offered monthly to expectant twin families all over the globe and Facebook live chats on topics important to twin families with live Q&A with Nat.
What sets Twiniversity apart from other organizations?
We are the only multichannel twins support network, offering classes, articles, books, community, resources, private support… and humor! We like to laugh at the lighter side of having twins and help parents to feel less alone in the roller coaster ride of multiples parenting.
What can parents expect from Twiniversity at the Chicago Baby Show?
You can expect to hear down-to-earth, honest, true-to-life advice from a twin mom who has “been there, done that” and is ready to dish it all for you.
