WombTwin.com Ltd (Womb Twin) was founded in 2007 by Althea Hayton as a company limited by guarantee with members. Althea is the Chairman of the company, working with a board of directors.
Althea started the Womb Twin Survivors Reserch Project in 2002, using an extensive online questionnaire to gather data about the behavior, attitudes feelings and beliefs of womb twin survivors. Althea is herself a womb twin survivor and is a qualfied counsellor who now works exclusively with womb twin survivors. She has published four books about womb twin survivors since 2007.
"It is a great pleasure and privilege to work with womb twin survivors and hear their stories. Thanks to their generosity in sharing their inner lives with me, the Womb Twin Research Project has unearthed some useful new knowledge about the special psychology of womb twin survivors. Now the books are published, we can all use this knowledge to help womb twin survivors to heal themselves. I look forward to many more years of working with Womb Twin and watching it grow from strength to strength."

"I myself am a twin with a sister who preceded me into this world by an hour - and rather unusually my mother had twin sisters. I cannot imagine what it must be like if your life begins wrapped up in someone else and then suddenly nothing."
