Tamba is the only UK-wide charity working to improve the lives of twins, triplets or more, and their families. We do this through successful campaigning to improve health and developmental outcomes; funding clinical research to reduce the risks faced before, during and after birth; and by providing practical support for all families, including those in crisis. We also run courses and webinars to support families both during pregnancy and in the early years.
We also support health professionals with a wide range of CPD resources covering antenatal care, intrapartum care, best practice and videos of multiple pregnancy study days.

A baby’s skin is much more delicate than your own, so it should be cleaned with only the gentlest and purest elements possible. WaterWipes are the only wipes made with just water, specially purified and softened using a special technique, and a tiny drop of fruit extract – a natural skin conditioner.

WaterWipes have been carefully designed to be gentle on babies’ sensitive skin. Because of this, 97% of midwives believe that WaterWipes are suitable to be used on the skin of new-born babies. *

WaterWipes are the only baby wipe approved by Allergy UK and awarded the National Eczema Association of America’s Seal of Acceptance and 3 other National Associations.
