A message from MBC about National Multiple Births Awareness Day!

I am pleased to present you with the theme for National Multiple Births Awareness Day 2014: "It's a multiple's choice: encourage twins, triplets and more to make individual decisions".

This theme goes beyond the words and actions of multiple-birth parents; it is a reflection for caregivers, teachers, social and medical professionals, friends, immediate and extended family. It is also a reminder to media and the general public to consider how they view and treat twins, triplets and more. Allowing young multiples to grow into strong, independent adults is partially connected to the decision making process – the same or different is acceptable; the importance is in encouraging autonomous choices.
