Our Mission:

Welcome to the Kitchener-Waterloo Parents of Multiple Births Association (K-W POMBA) website, a resource for families of multiple births. Our mission is to provide guidance, support and encouragement to families and expectant families of multiples. We aim to connect our members with each other, and with relevant resources in our community so they can better enjoy their unique parenting experiences. We are volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organization, and a proud chapter of Multiple Births Canada.

Need another night to get out of the house? We have introduced a New Coffee Pub Night! Open to all parents of multiples (even non-members). We will be holding a casual drop in once a month on the first Wednesday of each Calendar month at Gilt Restuarant, 305 King Street West, Kitchener. We want to have a casual atmosphere for mom's and dad's to just come out relax and chat. Hosted by Linnea and Julie
