PREGNANCY TWINNING 1000 focuses on the most formative phase of a baby’s life; the first 1,000 days – from conception until their 2nd birthday. So we support Mums and Dads, in both Africa and the UK, through pregnancy and until their child is 2.

1000 dreams in Africa – our 3-year goal is to see 1000 mums in Africa and the UK being fully supported during their first 1000 days. Will you be one of the 1000 supporters needed to reach this goal?
It’s World Breastfeeding month in August! Every August for the first seven days of the month, World Breastfeeding Week aims to highlight the huge benefits that breastfeeding can bring to both the health and welfare of babies, as well as a wider push for maternal health, focusing on good nutrition, poverty reduction and food security.The event is organised every year by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA), a global network that aims to protect, promote and support breastfeeding around the world. Along the way, it works with the World Health Organization and Unicef to get its aid to the right people in the right communities.
Finally, in a survey in the UK, presented by the Duchess of Cambridge, of over half a million people, ‘76% of parents are not aware that the first five years are most important for health and happiness in adulthood.’ You can download a copy of the report here.
