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.

Multiple Births Canada has always known that it is our volunteers who are at the core of the support MBC offers. Do you know someone who volunteers in the Multiple Births Community and Makes a Difference? Now is your time to acknowledge their passion, their dedication, and their excellence in all that they do and nominate them for a Making A Difference Award handed out annually at the Conference and AGM. MBC could not fulfill its mission of improving the quality of life of Canadian multiple birth individuals and their families without our volunteers. Whether it is someone who is a stellar local volunteer, an organization that has gone over and above to support MBC's mission, or a media person who helps your chapter to highlight your supports and services, we want to hear from you! Nominations for the 2016 MADAs are now open, simply go here to fill out our online nomination form. See below for a new exciting award category.
 
A few words from one of MBC's past winners on what being acknowledged meant to her - "The only experience better than raising my own twins and their older sister has been the extraordinary joy in helping so many others for so many years. I am grateful for the recognition of this devotion." Lynda P. Haddon, 2012 National MADA Winner.
 
MBC is always looking for new award committee members. If you would be interested in reading over the nominations and helping to choose the winners, please contact mada@multiplebirthscanada.org

MADA Chapter Award!

MBC is pleased to announce the creation of the newest category in the Making a Difference Awards - Chapter Award. MBC invites affiliate chapters to nominate themselves and share with other chapters across the Country something you've done that is innovative and you're proud of.

The award will go to chapters that have displayed outstanding dedication or have been responsible for outstanding accomplishments of significance to their local multiple births community. Multiple awards may be given based on the size of the chapter membership. Chapters are encouraged to self-nominate by submitting a short write up about a project or event that positively impacted their community, from the link on the MADA page
