    Welcome to TPOMBA, 
    the Toronto Parents of Multiple Births Association!

    TPOMBA is a non-profit organization for parents of twins, triplets and more. Founded in 1973, we are one of the largest organizations of our kind in Canada and our goal is to offer support, education, friendship and a network of support to families dealing with the unique challenges and joys of raising multiples in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

    Whether your multiples are already here or are on the way, we offer our members the opportunity to connect with a wonderful community of more than 500 members. We have developed services to ensure that our families can access the necessary information and support relating specifically to multiples.

    Some of the benefits of membership include:
    • Share experiences and build friendships to last a lifetime– we host monthly meetings where parents of multiples get together in a range of Toronto neighbourhoods.
    • Access to seminars and workshops created just for parents of multiples - Our Expectant Parents Information Evenings offers a wonderful, sneak peak for new members into life with multiple babies. These sessions are held four times a year and are run by experienced parents. We discuss topics ranging from pre-maturity, feeding multiple babies, coping in the early weeks and months, equipment and how TPOMBA can help. We also host other information sessions during the year dealing with various other topics such as speech and sleep.
    • Receive an information-packed newsletter, called the Bulletwin, which is distributed bi-monthly and read articles on the latest topics related to multiples and find out what is going on within the association.
    • Purchase used clothing and gear for less – we have two annual sales where members can buy and sell gently used clothing and gear for babies and children at great prices.
    • Access to social events – every year we host our annual picnic in High Park which is attended by many of our members making it the largest gathering of families of multiples in Toronto. Dad’s Nights Out are a chance for Dads of Multiples to get together and have fun. Each local Parents of Multiples group also host social events of their own.

Whatever your needs, we are sure we can connect you to the right resource and support that you will need.
    • Exclusive discounts at many Toronto businesses – as a member of TPOMBA, you can get discounts at participating businesses across the GTA.
    TPOMBA is completely staffed by dedicated volunteers whose goal is to offer support to other parents of multiples and to provide the best opportunities to share and learn about dealing with and raising our unique families.

    We hope to be an important part of your journey whether you’re parents to be, new parents, or experienced parents of multiples.

    We're only an e-mail or phone call away if you need us and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
