Linda Leonard has created an amazing, comprehensive resource regarding multiple births in British Columbia, Canada 🇨🇦️ and beyond. This in depth brochure will be of interest to parents expecting twins or more, grandparents, healthcare professionals, researchers, grieving parents, and any one else with an interest in multiple births. Lots of information and resources re breastfeeding of multiples. I am so excited about this valuable brochure. Check it out here: https://nursing.ubc.ca/pdfs/twinstripletsandmore.pdf

A new children’s book has just been released and it focuses on sharing a death with young children, and what their feelings might involve as a result. Their feelings may be  very different than an adult’s might, for example. Another example is introducing children to the rituals of a funeral.
 
The book is called THE FUNERAL and was written by Matt James.
