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.
