Parent Info Night Image


Parent Information Night

DPOM hosts a regular Parent Information Night for new members and expectant parents. Hosted by parents of multiples and designed for both moms and dads, we will discuss frequently asked questions and common concerns about how to prepare, bringing your babies home, breastfeeding tips, helping siblings adjust and how DPOM can help. Parent Information Nights are held approximately every two months. Please contact Jenn at jennifer.dpom@gmail.com.  

Mom To Mom Nights Image


Monthly MoM Nights

DPOM hosts one support meeting each month, alternating in east and west Durham. These are warm and friendly get-togethers for moms with multiples of any age. Share your stories and ask questions of moms that have "been there". If you do not have questions you probably have answers for other members. See your newsletter, the DPOM website members page, DPOM Facebook page, or your inbox for dates and locations. No RSVP is required, just drop in!

Parents Night Out Image


Parents' Night Out

We all need a night away from the kids once in a while! Join us for a Parents Night Out and meet some other parents of twins, triplets or more.  

Annual Kids Christmas Party Image


Annual Kids Holiday Party

Each holiday season DPOM hosts a magical day with children’s entertainment, lunch, and a personalized gift for each child. Not to be missed, this is the kid’s event of the year! It is also a great way for parents to connect with other families of multiples.

Multiple Births Awareness Day Image


Multiple Births Awareness Day May 28th

Established in 2005 by Multiple Births Canada, this date has been designated as the day for raising national awareness of the unique issues faced by multiple-birth individuals and their families. National Multiple Births Awareness Day provides a venue to unite and celebrate our personal journeys as parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, spouses, daycare and service providers, educators, and health professionals supporting Canada’s multiple-birth community.

 


Fundraisers

DPOM is a non-profit organization run solely by volunteers. Fundraisers are important to keeping our club running! Please watch your newsletter, the message board, and your inbox for information about fundraisers. We try to keep these to two campaigns per year and focus on products and services that make your busy life easier. Thank you for your support!
