Post-Partum Mood Disorder Survey

An important request from the International Council of Multiple Birth Organizations regarding Post Partum and multiple births:
--------------------------------------------------
Have you filled out this survey yet? Please make sure to share it with your multiple-birth parent friends and community!
 
The International Council of Multiple Birth Organizations (ICOMBO) is very excited to share with you the ICOMBO survey on Post-Partum Mood Disorder (or Post-natal Depression).
 
This illness is not uncommon in multiple-birth families. ICOMBO is looking to find how frequently it occurs, and how severely it affects multiple-birth families. We believe that this data has not previously been collected internationally and we are excited to share with you this project.
 
We hope that our findings may lead to changes to the way families are monitored and improve the level of support for new families of multiples. The results of the survey will be discussed at the ISTS/ICOMBO congress in Budapest in November and through the ICOMBO newsletter.
 
The survey is available in the following languages (click on the link in your preferred language):
 
 
 
 
We ask two things:
 
1. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey; and
2. Circulate it throughout the multiple-birth community to friends and families with multiples.
 
If you represent a Chapter or group supporting multiple-birth families please share with your members and contacts.
