About Twinsane Mama
Twinsane Mama is a motherhood and lifestyle blog written by a first-time mom, and first-time TWIN MOM (!!!). I’m also a marketing agency brand strategist and freelance writer.
I started this blog as a fun way to share stories and feelings about my pregnancy and being a new mom.
When we found out it was twins, I felt so overwhelmed and didn’t know where to turn! There are a lot of great sites out there for info, but for me, I want to share stories and tips from our daily life – just one mom to another!
Also, since being diagnosed and delivering my twins early at 27 weeks due to TTTS (Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome), I am dedicated to raising awareness of this condition that affects identical twin pregnancies and ensuring pregnant identical (mono-di) twin moms know the monitoring protocol they should be receiving from their care providers. ❤
Our boys are truly miracles. Axel suffered a Grade 3 and Grade 4 brain bleed, and Jaxon suffered a large bilateral Grade 4 (the highest severity) which resulted in post-hemmoraghic hydrocephalus, with him undergoing 2 brain surgeries in his first 60 days of life.
We were told both boys will have mild to severe levels of disability as they grow up. We choose to believe they are here for a reason and will do great things, whatever their level of abilities turn out to be. We can’t wait to watch them grow into the men they’re meant to be.
I hope you’ll enjoy a little peek inside my family life, as I know I love reading so many other mom blogs for this reason. 🙂
I’m Michelle, and I’m a 31 year old first-time mom. I live just outside of Vancouver, BC, Canada with my husband and Doberman (you can follow him on Insta at @perrythedoberman).
We found out we were having identical twins at our 9 week dating ultrasound. What a shocker!
Our twin boys were due July 24, 2018 but were born 3 months early on April 26, 2018 at 27 weeks 2 days due to rapidly advancing Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome.
I’m so excited to share pieces of my life here with friends, family and… you!
