AMBA joins PANDA to help raise awareness about perinatal anxiety and depression amongst parents of multiples

AMBA is working with PANDA – Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia to increase awareness about perinatal anxiety and depression amongst parents of multiples.

“We know that parents of multiples are at increased risk of developing perinatal anxiety or depression,” says Ashlee Tenberge, AMBA Chairperson. “So it’s important for all our members to know that there is information and support available to help them whether during pregnancy or in early parenthood.”

PANDA is a specialist not for profit organisation that has been raising awareness of antenatal and postnatal depression for over 30 years and has helped tens of thousands of Australians get vital information, support and treatment to aid their recovery.

PANDA operates Australia’s only National Helpline for women, men and families struggling with perinatal anxiety and depression. The organisation also provides information and resources to the community to help increase awareness about perinatal anxiety and depression and to provide advice around seeking support.

Clubs can contact PANDA at info@panda.org.au to order resources for use at prenatal information evenings.

We all know that multiples are special but many don’t realise the significant contribution they can make in the worldwide fight against many medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes and heart disease – and just how easy it is for multiples (and their parents) to be involved and to make a real difference.

What is Twins Research Australia?asthma study

Twins Research Australia (formerly the Australian Twin Registry) was established in 1981 to serve as a link between researchers and twins and multiples who are interested in getting involved in research projects.  With over 66,000 members, Twins Research Australia has become one of the largest volunteer registries of multiples in the world. Nevertheless, this still only represents about 17% of twins in Australia, therefore we always welcome new members.

Twins Research Australia is open to twins and HOMs of all ages, identical and non-identical, males and females and in any state of health.

Children (including newborn babies) can join but must be registered by their parents.
