National Multiple Births Awareness Day 2022
Community Re-imagined… Enhancing Wellness and Connection for Multiple Birth Families
National Multiple Births Awareness Day (NMBAD) is on Saturday, May 28th, 2022. MBC has a focus on improving the mental health of the Canadian multiple birth community and that is why it is our collective responsibility to step up and help each other. We do that by connecting and by making ourselves understood – using our online and in-person presence wherever possible. This year's theme Is Community re-imagined… enhancing wellness and connection for multiple birth families.
As part of our vision for 2022-2023 MBC has created a new professional video that:
Celebrates multiple births family
Grows awareness for our community
Brings a spotlight to the realities of being a multiple births family
Allows MBC and Chapters to better advocate for multiples families
The support that you need to get through this journey comes from the greater MBC community. Multiple Births Canada and the local Chapters are working on engaging with the community, delivering key materials, supporting members, and overall being a key touchpoint to connecting parents of multiple births with other parents. We are looking to continue all the great work and expand on it moving forward. Assisting to alleviate the pressure and knowing it is OK, we are here for you.
This year at MBC, we have big aspirations and want to
Re-enforce the importance of community
Re-affirm connections in real life or virtually
Renew engagement along the multiple births family lifecycle
Drive relevant, adaptable, information to our community
Attract younger generations of multiple births families
Ensure that all voices from multiple-birth parents are heard
Our community is you! We are eager to engage and be part of your journey. You are Not Alone. It is OK – we at MBC are here for you! Remember as our communities are re-imagined, at MBC we look forward to enhancing wellness and connection for multiple birth families, and you are never alone. Let’s do this!
