Eastside Mothers of Multiples
has been in existence since 1969, known at that time as Eastside
Double Delights Mothers of Twins Club. It started with 23 members and
has changed a bit over the years. In the last 10 years, the club name
was changed to reflect membership of mothers of triplets and
quadruplets. Current membership includes some fathers. EMOMs has grown
to a vital, exciting group of over 500 parents of multiples. According
to the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs, we are likely
among the largest five clubs in the US.
Why join an organization for families with multiples?
One of the best aspects of EMOMs is the association and communication
with other parents of multiples. Often you will discover that the
problems and frustrations you encounter in raising your multiples have
been experienced by other members, and it is extremely beneficial to
discuss them with someone who understands - because they have been
there! Their suggestions and insight can mean a great deal. Being a
parent of multiples can be challenging, but it is definitely a special
thing. EMOMs celebrates parenting multiples.
What keeps EMOMs going?
EMOMs is a 100% volunteer organization. Besides being essential to
the club, volunteering is fun and a great way to meet people.
Sometimes it can be a great excuse to get away from the kids, an
opportunity to feel productive at home, or a way to include the kids
and the family. Often, new families of multiples are overwhelmed in
the first year or two, but are then able to give back as their
multiples get older. Information regarding volunteer opportunities is
available on the member website.
Mothers of Multiples is a member of the Northwest Association of
Mothers of Twins Clubs (NWAMOTC). This organization ties together local
clubs from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, and British Columbia.
Through the Northwest Association, members of local clubs gather twice a
year to conduct business and establish further ties with the special
community of mothers of multiples. Membership in EMOMs automatically
provides membership in the Northwest organization, which distributes
newsletters (The Twin-O-Gram) and support materials.
