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.
The Home Help Service supports South Australian families with twins, triplets or more, by providing free home visits from caring professionals when the babies are young. The program is available for all SA residents, including rural families. Read more about this amazing service here.
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 pillow hire coordinator or put an inquiry through our Facebook page 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:
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!"
MBSA holds a variety of events throughout the year including information sessions, social catch ups on evenings and weekends, Dads’ nights and the fabulous Christmas party. The vast majority of these events are completely free for members.
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 contact us or put an inquiry through our Facebook page.
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.
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.
