'Share the Journey'
The journey of carrying, delivering and raising two or more babies at once is no easy feat and a task best shared with a trusted and supportive network. KapiMana Multiples helps families build these essential connections by linking them with community, information and support.
The theme for Multiples Awareness Week 2019 is 'Share the Journey'
Many parents of multiples feel isolated and overwhelmed due to their unique situation. Mental health issues occur at a much higher rate in parents of multiples. A strong sense of belonging is essential for good mental health and wellbeing. KapiMana Multiples fosters these connections by linking families to a community of local multiple birth families.
Those who actively ‘share the journey’ with their peers often develop strong bonds and lifelong friendships through the shared experience of parenting multiples and the many unique joys and challenges this brings.
By getting involved in club activities such as clothing grabs and playgroups, parents will have the opportunity to share their stories, knowledge and skills as well as offering words of reassurance and encouragement that build confidence and a sense of belonging.
At KapiMana Multiples we know that parenting multiples is a journey best shared.
