Multiple Births Canada Support Networks

You are not alone graphic1

You are not Alone. Multiple Births Canada strives to offer support to parents and caregivers with unique and sometimes troubling situations. To that end, MBC has created several networks that are intended to provide networking opportunities, resources and supports for families in these unique circumstances. In past years, MBC has introduced new networks to meet the diverse needs of Canada's multiple-birth families. Recently MBC has launched two new Facebook groups to support even more people seeking help, advice and some days just a friendly message on the computer screen. Below you will find descriptions of MBC's two new Facebook Groups, along with the links to all of MBC's existing groups and the link to the Support Page on MBC's website so you can learn more about our networks. If you are not on Facebook, please email with questions regarding finding support in other ways.

The Postpartum Depression/Anxiety Support Network is for families of multiples who are experiencing symptoms of PPD, PPA and “Baby Blues” to seek support and understanding from others who know what you are going through. Symptoms include • crying for no apparent reason • chronic fatigue or hypersomnia • loss of appetite • feeling overwhelmed and hopeless • doubt or guilt • compulsive over the babies’ care • ignoring the babies’ care • feeling worthless, unable to cope • anxiety attacks • inability to concentrate, indecisiveness • in the extreme, thoughts of suicide. If a mother or father of multiples is experiencing such symptoms, don’t dismiss them as being part of the extra workload due to having multiples. The more of these symptoms the parent is feeling, the more likely it is that they are suffering PPD. Consult a doctor immediately. Remember you are not alone.
