How Twinning works

HOW DOES TWINNING WORK?

  • Choose twinning type

    Fill out the form and select if you’d like your final certificate delivered by email (£42 incl admin) or posted in a frame (£44.95 incl P&P).

  • Donate and receive Twinning Card

    Donate via PayPal (you can use a card). You’ll immediately receive an email from certificates@pregnancytwinning.org with your Twinning Card which gives you details of the pregnant woman you are ‘twinned’ with – a woman we’ve identified as needing extra support in her pregnancy.

  • We support your twin

    In real time, a Mother Buddy is allocated to your twin. She’ll visit her 8 times during and after the pregnancy tracking her health and signposting her to services using mobile technology.

  • Your twin gives birth

    When your twin has given birth, her Mother Buddy will visit in that vital first week providing advice, support and capturing a photo of the new family.

  • Receive Twinning Certificate

    Within 5-7 days of us receiving the happy news, your certificate will be processed and land on your doormat/in your inbox to show you the impact your donation has had.
