AMBA launches annual Multiple Birth Awareness Week to raise awareness about the wide range of resources and information it takes to support multiple birth families.
The Australian Multiple Birth Association (AMBA) today announced the theme for this year’s Multiple Birth Awareness Week (MBAW), running from the 24th February to the 3rd March 2019. The annual week-long event centres around running community events to raise awareness of the important work done by AMBA and local clubs around Australia in providing vital support to multiple birth families. In 2019, AMBA is focusing on building the connections with families, by linking them with community, information and support.
The theme for Multiple Birth Awareness Week (MBAW) 2019 is ‘Share the Journey’.
The journey of carrying, delivering and raising two or more babies at once is no easy feat and a task best shared with a trusted and supportive network. AMBA helps families build these essential connections by linking them with community, information and support.
Ashlee Tenberge, AMBA Chairperson said “Many parents of multiples feel isolated and overwhelmed due to their unique situation. A strong sense of belonging is essential for good mental health and wellbeing. AMBA fosters these connections by linking families to a community of local multiple birth families.”
Those who actively ‘share the journey’ with their peers often develop strong bonds and lifelong friendships through the shared experience of parenting multiples and the many unique joys and challenges this brings.
We encourage families, schools and support organisations to discover more by visiting www.amba.org.au and www.facebook.com/AustralianMultipleBirthAssociation.
AMBA has a growing list of events for MBAW around Australia; we invite you to contact us or go to www.amba.org.au/clubfinder to find a contact for your local AMBA club or to organise a photo of a local family with twins, triplets or more.
