Practical support delivered by caring professionals in your own home, even if you live in the country. This service is available to parents of higher order multiples and eligible twin families. Please contact us for more information.
We have breastfeeding pillows (including Twin Z an My Brest Friend pillows) available for MBSA members to borrow for free. If you cannot get into the MBSA office easily we can post it, so please get in touch with our office to see what we have in stock and how we can get it to you. We do require a refundable deposit.
Being a member of Multiple Birth SA entitles you to various discounts, including:
Safe, supportive spaces across the state for families with twins, triplets and more to connect and play. There’s probably one near you where you can meet other multiple families face to face, get support and make some new life long friends.
Private groups on Facebook for Multiple Birth SA members where you can ask questions, find loads of useful tips and keep up to date on all the latest goings on:
I have never been a member of a forum and I am a rather silent member of the group. However coming on here and reading others experiences when I was at my absolute wits end (when the twins were around 8 weeks old) was just a life saver. I could see there were others who had been here and survived. Some of the comments even turned my tears into laughter. It has just been the best thing I could have done. Thank you MBSA!Kate
Various events are held throughout the year including playgroups, information sessions, social catch ups on evenings and weekends, Dads’ nights and the fabulous Christmas party.
The Multiple Mag provides personal stories and anecdotes from members, details of up coming events and general Multiple Birth SA news every two months.
MBSA is affiliated with the national body – AMBA. Each of our members automatically receive an AMBA membership when they join MBSA.
Support is available from our staff, our committee members and the wider community. If you need help or have a question please do not hesitate to call the office, visit in person or put an inquiry through our Facebook page.
MBSA does not provide these classes but we highly recommend attending one by about 30 weeks as multiples often come early! Classes for expectant multiple birth parents are held at the Women’s and Children’s, Flinders Medical Centre and Lyell McEwin Hospitals. Classes are open to all expectant parents regardless of where you are planning on birthing.
