Multiple Births Canada (MBC) celebrates 30 years of supporting multiple-birth individuals and their families in Canada in 2008! This is an exciting year for our national organization and our community. To mark the occasion, we will host a National Conference--a comprehensive three-day educational symposium. The theme of the Conference is "Supporting Canada's multiple-birth community for 30 years", and programming will focus on the Professionals, Parents, Volunteers and Chapters who comprise this national organization.
Topics such as The Multiple Birth Experience: One Size Does Not Fit All, Losses in Multiple Births and Providing Appropriate Support, Learning Needs of Multiple-birth Students and Breastfeeding Guidelines and Best Practices for Hospital and Community are just a few of the workshops to be delivered by expert speakers from Canada and the United States. The National Conference will be attended by health care professionals (physicians, nurse practitioners, midwives, doulas, etc.), educators and child care providers as well as multiple-birth parents and volunteers.
