Events For Prospective Members
Expectant Parent Meetings
These sessions are held by our Expectant Parent Coordinators and include a panel of parents to share “real-life-with-multiples” experiences. If you have any questions, concerns or need any information about having multiples then this is for you! A morning tea with fellow expectant parents, it includes giveaways, a presentation and information packs, guest speakers and some fabulous raffle prizes! All expectant parents are most welcome and you can join the Association on the day.
Events For Members
Multiple picnics are held each year and include our annual Easter and Christmas family picnics. There picnics usually include activities for children of all ages as well as raffles, cake stalls and a sausage sizzle.
Multiples in School Forum
This forum is held each year for parents whose multiples will be starting their schooling in the following year. It provides an opportunity to hear advice from an experienced teacher and ask questions of a parent panel, who will share their own experiences of multiples schooling. The Association has a Multiples in School Contact who will be happy to discuss any problems you may be experiencing at any time.
This is an annual, informal event that includes tip sharing on how to survive the second year and beyond with your multiples. Content includes survival strategies for families, safety, sleep, tantrums and discipline, toilet training, toddler development, etc.
Breastfeeding For Multiples Workshop
These workshops are held throughout the year and are led by a qualified lactation consultant and supported by a parent panel ready to share their experiences with expectant parents. We received the national AMBA Appreciation 2011 Local Club Award for developing and running this workshop and the Breastfeeding Multiples information booklet that goes with it. This workshop usually has a $30 fee.
First Aid Courses
First aid courses are held throughout the year and give members the opportunity to attend a free short first aid course presented by Royal Life Saving WA. The training session runs for three hours and covers first aid for common child injuries including burns and scolds, choking, drowning and how to perform infant and child resuscitation or CPR.
The “New to You” Clothing Swap is an annual event that gives members the opportunity to upsize their children’s clothing without having to pay retail price. Members donate clothes, prior to the event, in exchange for credits, which can then be redeemed for bigger sizes / change of season clothes on the day. Members who do not have clothes to donate can purchase credits of the day for 1 each.
New Parents Morning Teas
are held twice a year and are a chance for you to meet new people and join in discussions with other parents of twins and/or triplets under 12 months old. Share stories and swap numbers with other families of multiples and enjoy a morning tea too! Many a coffee group has begun at a New Parent Morning Tea so come along and meet some fellow multiple families.
Family Portrait Photo Days
These photo days are held multiple times throughout the year, usually for a $20 sitting fee per family. This includes a complimentary A4 photo of your choice and an opportunity to purchase other prints. An online gallery is available to view and purchase photos and additional products from the session.
