About Us

If you live in Manitoba and are expecting multiples or are parents of multiples, we encourage you to join Manitoba Families of Multiples (MBFOM).

MBFOM is a non-profit group for families with twins and triplets. From gatherings to online support, member families are engaged and supported in the experience of raising multiples. Our organization is staffed by a group of dedicated volunteers.

For a low yearly membership fee, members gain access to a social network and family events aiming to bring together and support multiple families. Learn more about becoming a member.

Our Story

The Manitoba Families of Multiples (formerly known as the Winnipeg Parents of Twins and Triplets Organization) was formed in March 1966 by a group of five mothers of twins and triplets who were interested in meeting to discuss their common problems and to share solutions.

From that modest start, Manitoba Families of Multiples has supported over 1,000 member families throughout the years – that’s a lot of multiples! Our main objectives are to provide guidance and moral support to families of multiple births and to promote an interest in and supply information about multiples to any interested group or individual.
