Sunday 8th March to Sunday 15th March 2015
Multiple Birth Awareness Week is a national event held annually to celebrate the joy of parenting multiples and also to educate communities and professionals about the unique challenges of parenting twins, triplets and more.
In 2015 we’re acknowledging the teams that are involved in helping to raise twins, triplets or more and showing how, by working together, we can help families to thrive, not just survive. Making AMBA part of their team can produce real benefits to the mental health and coping skills of parents. Many people are unaware of the mental health benefits of joining a support group; support groups can be a great place to access a community, find services, practical tips, resources and social events with like-minded people.
Multiple Birth Clubs around Australia celebrate MBAW with gusto! Check out the range of events we have planned for this special week in the calendar below. If there isn't an event list in your area connect with your local AMBA club to find out what they have planned www.amba.org.au/clubfinder.
The 4th Twins Plus Festival will be held on Sunday 22 March 2015 at Caulfield Racecourse. Experience the magic of joining thousands of other twins, triplets and quadruplets (and maybe more) and their family and friends, for an event like no other in Australia. This event is open to all twins and multiples, their family and friends. Check out the fun and activities from the 2012 festival here http://www.twinsfestival.com.au.
