Eastside Mothers of Multiples (EMOMs) is a nonprofit membership organization serving Seattle’s Eastside, dedicated to fostering mutual support between families facing the unique joys and challenges of raising multiples: twins, triplets and more. Our volunteers facilitate the exchange of information, ideas, and clothing/equipment through our private forums, semi-annual sale, and a wide range of other activities. These resources also provide members with much-needed support and opportunities to form lasting friendships with other mothers and families of multiples.
Our primary membership area includes Seattle’s Eastside: Bellevue, north to Bothell, east to North Bend, south to Renton, and west to Lake Washington. The majority of our members live on the Eastside, and most of our official club functions—including meetings and social events—take place on the Eastside as well. There are many multiples organizations serving Western Washington. If you have multiples and live outside our primary service area, we encourage you to contact the local organization closest to you. (See links below.)
EMOMs has been in existence since 1969, when the club began as Eastside Double Delights Mothers of Twins Club. It started with just 23 members—and we have grown a lot since then!
Today we have a members-only web site that fosters communication across hundreds of member families, forums, monthly meetings and social events, semi-annual consignment sales, and social media channels.
What hasn’t changed is that we are a 100% volunteer-run organization. We are all busy parents dealing with the same challenges you face, sharing the same goal of wanting to under-stand and meet our children’s needs, and facing the unique challenges that most parents don’t quite “get”.
