THERE are twins and triplets galore in the Hunter.
From Sunday, March 11 to Sunday, March 18, we celebrated Multiple Birth Awareness Week.
In 2018, the Australian Multiple Birth Association (AMBA) chose Strength in Numbers as their theme for the event.
Multiple Birth Awareness Week has a few purposes, including hosting community awareness events and providing support for families and individuals.
“To AMBA, strength in numbers represents what the group is all about,” AMBA chairperson Ashlee Tenberge said.
“It’s about giving families with twins, triplets or more, strength by providing information and support.
“It's about connecting these families with a community of over 5000 other families of multiples so that they know they are not alone.”
Guiding two or more children through life stages at the same time can be very demanding on parents.
