Higher order multiples (HOMs)

Higher order multiples (HOMs) are triplets or more and come with their own unique issues and challenges.  Our HOM contact is a parent of HOMs and is available to answer questions and help put you in contact with support services and help organise donations such as:

  • Babycare products (Johnson and Johnson)
  • Baby food (Heinz)
  • Nappies (Huggies)
  • Infant formula if needed (Wyeth)

HOM families may also be entitled to practical assistance from Red Cross and Wanslea – which have volunteers who can help for a few hours per week.  This is assessed on a needs basis.

It is also recommended that HOM families contact Centrelink promptly in regards to the Multiple Birth Subsidy.
