The #1 Resource & Support Network for Parents of Twins

natalie and the kids-43 about Twiniversity

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 soapbox 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.

Now reaching over 2 million families a year in over 150 countries, Twiniversity is the largest global resource for all things “twinnie”. With worldwide recognition in her field, Natalie Diaz brings her twin parenting expertise to our online resource, our podcasts, our live and online expecting twins classes, our social media channels, our Twiniversity App, and her bestselling book “What To Do When You’re Having Two“, the #1 bestseller on Amazon for Twins & Multiples Parenting.

Nat hasn’t done it alone; with her Mom Squad at her side, Twiniversity is supporting our families 24/7. about Twiniversity

Jessie Ballard

Jessie Ballard is mom to boy/girl twins, born in 2017.  One could compare them to feral cats. Life is hectic, but she takes it one joke at a time.  She works full time in auditing and writes as an outlet.  If it weren’t for her “village”, her sanity would have been gone long ago.  She didn’t plan to be a mom, but too many Blue Motorcycles made her go from zero to two with a quickness.  She wouldn’t change a thing, even though she’s dramatic and complains a lot. If you can’t see her, you can probably hear her yelling her kids’ names, since no one seems to know how to act.  She’s a hot mess but she accepts it.  A millennial mom, full of Tupac lyrics and snark. What you see is what you get. Unapologetically herself and judgment-free, just trying to survive raising two apples who didn’t fall far from the tree.
