About the project

Most women who have a multiple pregnancy (twins, triplets or more) do not have complications, but sadly, every day in the UK at least one baby from a multiple pregnancy dies. We worked with parents and staff to understand their experiences and feelings by conducting research, workshops and a film project.

This website is an educational resource and is linked to a FREE 4-hour online course for health professionals.

If you would like resources to use in the hospital such as Butterfly cot cards please contact Skye High Foundation.

If you are a parent and would like support and advice following the loss of a baby from a multiple pregnancy please contact the Twins Trust




This is an educational website and has been developed to help healthcare staff understand what it feels like to be a parent, and includes short film clips for the key themes, along with other stories and resources. The aim is to improve and share understanding of this challenging situation. Many will feel upset or saddened by listening to these stories, so you might want to think carefully where, when and how you will watch, and perhaps have some support to hand. We use the terms ‘death’ and ‘died’ rather than other words (such as ‘passed’) and apologise for anyone who is upset by these words. We are indebted to all the families who have helped us. Please respect them and their stories.
