Hi, I’m Stephanie.

It’s awesome to meet you. If you’ve arrived at my page, it’s probably because something I have said or written has piqued your interest, or you’re just curious about the person behind the videos and articles.

In a nutshell, I’m a writer. I’m also a speaker about twins and multiples, from sharenting, to advocating for appropriate care and all the joys and heartache of parenting multiples.

I also love “spinning a yarn,” a true raconteuse – and love to tell stories about the stuff that happens to me. I’m a word nerd down to the core, and if you ask my sisters, they’ll tell you about my sesquipedalian tendencies.

My passion lies in advocating for twins and multiples and, of course, their parents. You see, there are a lot of myths and misconceptions about twins, and also, many people don’t see the heartache, the fear, and sometimes the tragedy behind a multiple birth. For me, it’s about being honest about the realities of having multiples and educating on what people need to know. It’s not all matching hair ribbons and sailor suits when it comes to multiple births.

My own journey with Twin Anemia Polycythemia Sequence has motivated me to do this. My girls’ story is about courage, strength, and many humorous anecdotes about placentas. I created a foundation that takes their story and brings it to the world and advocates for updated screening protocols. We also have challenges associated with TAPS and its long-term effects, and I speak openly and honestly about what we have been through.

But enough about me – I’d love to know about you. Send me an email and tell me what brought you to my page. Tell me your story via this link.

Oh, that’s where I’ve seen you before!
