    how to pronounce twins'

    At first, the twins’ mother wasn't worried.

    In this sentence, I wonder if the word--twins’--is pronounced as [ˈtwɪn-zɪz].
    Unfortunately, I am unable to use the "Thanks" and "Like" buttons. I appreciate all of your help.

    No. The apostrophe makes no difference to the pronunciation. It sounds the same as "twins".
