WHY 1000?

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

Research shows that a baby’s brain is developing and expanding at an exponential rate during this critical period. This effects babies in Africa mainly  in terms of physical and mental stunting, and in the UK in terms of the child’s future mental health.

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?
