WHY 1000?

PREGNANCY TWINNING now supports Mums and Dads through the most formative phase of their baby’s life; the first 1,000 days from conception to their 2nd birthday.

In both the UK and Africa.

Research shows that a baby’s brain is developing and expanding at an exponential rate during this critical period. At the time when parents have a thousand dreams for their child’s future, the brain is being built to enable these dreams – or not. This effects babies in Africa in terms of physical and mental stunting, and in the UK in terms of the child’s future mental health.

If, as mum or dad,  you’re struggling with stress, anxiety or depression during pregnancy or after birth, help is available here!

We’re twinning pregnancies across the world, and helping to make the most of those first 1000 days. Its one of the best investments you can make.

1000 dreams –  our 3-year goal is to see 1000 mums in Africa, and 1000 mums in the UK, be fully supported during their first 1000 days. Will you be one of the 1000 supporters needed to reach this goal?
