April is National Multiple Birth Awareness month. Do you have multiples or know someone that does? Check out this amazing resource to help you or a friend connect with a large network of great support groups.
Multiples of America (Also known as The National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs, Inc.)  is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families of multiple birth children through education, research, and networking. In partnering with local support groups, health care providers, researchers, and educators, and with the highest standards of integrity, respect and professionalism, we endeavor to aid parents of multiples and to raise public awareness of the unique qualities of multiple birth families.

Multiples of America is a network of more than 250 local clubs representing nearly 25,000 parents of twins and higher order multiples. With local chapter across the United States and growing every day you are sure to find a great resource to help on you and provide friendship and support along your journey as a parent of multiples.

During the month of April, we will be working with our local chapters from across the country to spread awareness and celebrate the wonderful world of multiple birth children and their families. 
Our focus is on educating our communities about the special challenges and needs of multiple birth children while celebrating the joys they bring to our families. This year we are building on the inaugural theme of educating our communities on the vast network of support groups that are available to assist families with multiple birth children.

We are looking to the community to help spread the word of National Multiple Birth Awareness month and of the support we offer to multiple birth families. We are excited to share that Multiples of America will be assisting the Toledo Mothers of Twins Club with their special Multiples Night at the Toledo Mud Hens baseball game in May. As part of Multiple Birth Awareness, Multiples of America collaborates with one club to assist in their preparation for their special event. Check out www.multiplesofamerica.com to learn more about this event and other events put on by other clubs across the United States.
