Moms of Twins...Superwomen?


To all you mothers out there, whether you have one baby, twins, or more...I think you are all pretty awesome! We all know how hard being a mother can be at times. 

A recent study shows that women who have twins may be even stronger than most. How crazy is that!? So to all you mamas with twins, who have twice as much to deal with at one time, be encouraged! Now you know how special you are!

“We expected that since most humans have one baby at a time, having two would be really burdensome … [Twins] are an identifier of these women who are remarkable, physically exceptional people”

“Moms of twins beat moms of only singletons on every measure. They lived longer, had longer reproductive life spans, needed less time to recover between pregnancies, and had more children overall.”

Read the entire article here: Superwomen: Moms of Twins May Live Longer

This is such a fascinating study! So now we know there must be a reason we were all blessed with twice as many babies at once, we are strong enough to handle it! Now I kind of feel like walking around flexing my muscles randomly. I always knew I would grow up to be a superhero!

  5. As a mom expecting twins in just a couple of months -- thank you! I agree with what Trista said, especially about being a mom of multiples in a world where everyone looks at it like its a burden. We kick butt!
