Each year, around 1,000 Kiwi couples welcome twins, triplets or other multiples into the world.
The arrival of these babies brings excitement and joy, but also added challenges. Night feeds and day excursions take on a whole new dimension, and parenting multiples can be physically-demanding and emotionally exhausting – especially in the first years.
Multiples NZ is a nationwide parent-led support network supporting families in their journey from expecting to raising multiples.
Multiples NZ is a completely volunteer-run organisation that seeks to address the diverse needs of families with multiples through networking, education, support and advocacy. We work in partnership with local Multiples Clubs, community groups, health care providers and educators to support our members.
