Ipswich Multiple Birth Association Inc (IMBA) was established in 1987 by local mums and dads of twins, triplets or more. Our Association covers the boundaries of Springfield to Gatton and encompasses Ipswich and its surrounding areas of Esk, Toogoolawah and Boonah.

As a non-profit volunteer-based organisation, our aims are to provide practical and emotional support, access to information, friendship and social functions. To allow an opportunity for parents to share their coping strategies and discuss events unique to their situation, through communicating and sharing of information on the care and raising of multiples.

IMBA also strives to improve the resources and information available to families of multiples and to increase the awareness of these needs in our society.

We provide support, information and education for parents of multiples from pregnancy through to adulthood. We offer a range of services and social events throughout the year. All of these activities are coordinated and run by a dedicated team of volunteers from within the club who meet regularly to ensure the effective running of the club and to plan future events.
