Services

Multiple Birth SA provides a variety of services for multiple birth families which are summarised below. If you have any questions about any of these services please contact us.

Home Help Service

Practical support delivered by caring professionals in your own home, even if you live in the country. This service is available to parents of triplets, quads and more and eligible twin families. Please contact us for more information.

Free Feeding Pillow Hire

We have breastfeeding pillows (including Twin Z and My Brest Friend pillows) available for MBSA members to borrow for free. If you cannot get to one of the MBSA committee easily then 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.

Discounts

Being a member of Multiple Birth SA entitles you to various discounts, including:

  • 15% off at Baby Junction,
  • 20% off annual zoo membership, and
  • Lower cost options on various formulas, including huge savings on Blackmores, 20% off Bellamy’s Organic and 20% off Oli6 (Goat Milk) formula as well as information on how to join the Nutricia / Karicare multiple birth club to access their lower cost formula options.

Connect and Play groups

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.

Members Only Facebook Forums

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:

  • General members only forum which is a safe, supportive sanctuary for members to ask questions, seek advice and support each other without fear of judgement, criticism or condemnation,
  • Dads’ group run by our Dads’ Contacts for MBSA dads to connect and share their stories,
  • For those with older children we have our school aged multiples page to talk about issues faced by older multiples,
  • And last but not least, we have a sales page for members and ex-members where you can buy, sell & give from the Multiple Birth SA community. This is a great place to pick up a bargain x 2 or 3! Not to mention making some money from those items that you no longer need.

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!

Events

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.

Bi-Monthly Newsletter

The Multiple Mag provides personal stories and anecdotes from members, details of up coming events and general Multiple Birth SA news every two months.

Australian Multiple Birth Association membership

MBSA is affiliated with the national body – AMBA. Each of our members automatically receive an AMBA membership when they join MBSA.

Support

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.

Multiple Birth Specific Antenatal Sessions

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.
