Happy Birthday

Nmba

On National Multiple Births Awareness day, we honour the Dionne Quintuplets. They were born on this day 83 years ago. Happy Birthday to Cecile and Annette. We wish them all the best.

This year the theme for this day is Postpartum Emotional Support and Wellness for Multiple Birth Families
We recognize the higher risk for families with multiples to experience PPD/A and other mood disorders. 
We stand with those who have come through the other side stronger for the fight. 
We embrace those still struggling. 
We encourage you to seek assistance as we can’t always fix it ourselves. 
We support the families and friends who have been there, and continue to be there for those still fighting. 
 Together as a community, we stand together to eliminate the stigma of mental illness, to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of PPD/A and to encourage the healing of those who suffer.

2017 Multiple Births Awareness Day

Nmbad2017

 

In this week before National Multiple Births Awareness Day, we would like to share some stories written by brave moms within our membership.  As you may know this year the focus is on the higher risk for families with multiples to experience Postpartum Depression and/or Anxiety. These moms have taken the time to write about their experiences with Postpartum Depression and Anxiety as well as other situations that made their PPD/A even harder to heal. These stories aren’t always easy to read, they are real and hold nothing back.  When asked to share their stories, these women responded with their hearts and souls in order to help others going through similar circumstances. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and our website www.multiplemoments.ca all this week for the release of each new story.
