Register now for the #1 Recommended Expecting Twins Class in Chicago!
Twiniversity is thrilled to bring our expecting twins classes to the Windy City! Chicago expecting twins classes are now open for registration for expecting and new parents of twins and higher order multiples living in the Chicago area. Our Chicago expecting twins classes will prepare you for everything you need to know BEFORE the twins arrive (including what you need to buy!) and AFTER the twins arrive through their first 6 months of life. It's the perfect way to get ready to bring home your dynamic duo!
All classes are taught by Twiniversity's Wizard, Julie Burt Nichols.
All Twiniversity Chicago expecting twins classes are held at La Villa Restaurant & Banquets, 3638 North Pulaski Rd, Chicago. La Villa Restaurant & Banquets is right off the Kennedy Expressway – Irving Park exit. There is plenty of free lot parking.
See what our students are saying…
“The best class (and swag bags) in the city!!!” – SS
“I have one-month-old boy/girl twins and refer to Twiniversity on a daily basis. I took the class in Chicago months before delivering and it was the best thing I could've done. WAY more useful than any of the prenatal classes at the hospital. Julie was a great teacher and I learned a ton! So glad I went.” – LG
“Julie was fantastic! I loved how relaxed, honest and personal she was. She made it feel like a very comfortable and safe environment to talk about any of our fears or questions.” – LN
“Julie was personable, friendly, funny and poised. I was impressed by Julie's wealth of knowledge as well as her unflappability while teaching. As a teacher of over ten years, I found her to be an excellent instructor.” – Jenifer R.
“I would highly recommend this class to any parents expecting twins! I walked away feeling much more prepared for our twins arrival and confident that we were going to be okay… While the hospital classes are great for preparing for the birth and understanding the medical side of things, the Twiniversity classes assist parents for pregnancy and twin preparation, the birth, and most importantly what happens once the twins have arrived.” -CD
“I highly recommend this for first-time parents of twins. I took about fifteen pages of notes, which will no doubt be invaluable as the twins arrive. A great experience all around!” – Valerie S.
“I can't stop thinking about how incredibly helpful your course was in preparation for the twins – especially, as I mentioned, the breakdown of what happens with the c-section and time in the hospital, no one tells you anything! I hope we have friends/meet anyone who are expecting twins so we can ensure they attend.” – Cherice B.
“I think the best part of the class was the dedicated time that my husband and I attended the class together. I read a lot of baby and pregnancy books and websites, etc. but it was nice for both of us to hear it again from another person to really sink in. I think it helped my husband get much more mentally prepared for twins.” -NE
“Exactly what you need when overwhelmed with the craziness that approaches–concise, specific, and caring advice from people who have had the experience. They are supportive and helpful well beyond the classroom event, too. Highly recommended.” – Dan S.
Twiniversity Chicago expecting twins classes are perfect for…
- New families who just found out they are expecting two or more.
