TIPS for soon-to-be parents who are expecting twins, triplets or more will be on offer in Bendigo tonight.

A night for expectant parents led by the Bendigo Multiple Births Association is at Holy Trinity Church at 7pm.

The free session will feature expert presentations and aims to help connect expectant parents with like-minded people.

Membership secretary Sonya Browne said the association hosted regular parents' nights and playgroup sessions everyFriday morning.

"Kids aren't the main focus, you can sit down and have adult conversations," Mrs Browne said.

Parents expecting multiple births often had unique concerns and it was important they knew they were not alone, Mrs Browne said.

"I think it's trying to juggle everything," she said.

"Everyone's in the same boat. We all help each other out."

Mrs Browne said parents of twins or more should take up offers of help when they arose.

"A lot of people will come out of the woodwork to offer you help and if they offer, you have to accept it," she said.

Mrs Browne, who has twins of her own, said the group was also a chance to have a break from other people's "twin questions".

For information on the night, phone 0475 191 955.
