One of EMOMs' primary objectives is to provide support to members, both proactively and as needed. The club has several somewhat structured "subgroups" that meet regularly, sometimes with a planned meeting program and sometimes in a more social setting. EMOMs also has programs in place to offer more direct support to members, particularly families with new babies and familied in need.
Support Groups and Services
Monthly meetings often include informal
discussion as well as a planned
program, which may be a guest speaker or a specific discussion topic. Most of the meetings are broken out into affinity groups to allow members an opportunity to
engage in informal, facilitated discussion with other members who have
multiples in the same age range.
- First Year Group
addresses topics of specific interest to expectant and new parents of
multiples. New members repeatedly describe this group as one of the most
valuable resources during their first year with multiples.
- Toddler/Preschool Group addresses topics of specific interest to parents of children 1 to 5 years old.
- School-Age Group addresses topics of specific interest to parents of children in Kindergarten and older.
