Encouragement for individualisation in twins, triplets and more includes respect for the deep connection they have with each other.
The International Council of Multiple Birth Organisations (ICOMBO) has announced the theme of this year's Multiple Births Awareness Week (November 16 - 22) - "Helping our Multiples Shine as Individuals".
AMBA’s Patron, Associate Professor Mark Umstad, spoke about a study from the Robinson Research Institute at the University of Adelaide and said: “Finally, some good news on preventing preterm delivery in twins! The data on progesterone initially looked promising for twins, then twin experts became despondent over the years as several studies and reviews suggested little benefit, and possibly harm. The study has shown that progesterone does reduce adverse perinatal outcome in twins but only if the cervix is identified as being short prior to 24 weeks' gestation."
The Australian Multiple Birth Association (AMBA) 42st National Convention is being held in Sydney, 31 Oct – 2 Nov. The theme for this year's convention is 'Challenges' - we’re focusing on overcoming the challenges of raising multiples, running multiple birth clubs, and managing our national organisation.
