Multiple Birth Awareness Week 2024

Multiple Birth Awareness Week 2024 "Multiples unfiltered. Tell your story."

Sunday 17 March to Sunday 24 March 2024

The 2024 Multiple Birth Awareness Week theme is 'Multiples unfiltered. Tell your story. Find your community.' The experience of bringing multiple birth babies into the world is a huge journey with huge stories. We want to share those stories, unfiltered.

Multiple birth families need more support in Australia. Multiples are more likely to face greater challenges in their early years, necessitating additional dedicated support. In Australia, families with multiples receive no additional support, notwithstanding the modest Multiple Birth Allowance afforded to higher order multiples and subject to rigid means testing.

Only 11% of parents of multiples in Australia feel adequately supported by the programs and policies in place. It is time for a change! This Multiple Birth Awareness Week we are asking parents, grandparents, friends, caregivers and anyone who thinks multiples need more support to get involved!
