Welcome to POMBA
One membership for two great organizations!
The Parents of Multiple Births Association (POMBA) – Halifax is a non-profit organization of parents and guardians of multiple birth children serving all of Nova Scotia. Our purpose is to provide moral support to families dealing with the unique challenges and joys of raising multiples. If you wish to become a member, you will receive many benefits, including newsletters, access to our supports systems and most important of all – contact with more than 250 families with multiples. We have a fundraising clothing sales twice a year (consignment based) as well as many other events including a weekly playgroup, swimming, Mom’s Night Out, seasonal activities and lots more. POMBA is also chapter of Multiple Births Canada (effective February 2014). Multiple Births Canada’s (MBC) mission is to improve the quality of life for multiple birth individuals and their families in Canada.
MBC fulfills their mission by providing support, education, research, and advocacy both nationally and internationally to individuals, families, Chapters, and organizations that have a personal or professional interest in multiple birth issues. Members of POMBA are also automatic members of Multiple Births Canada with access to their resource materials, support programs and discount programs provided by MBC. POMBA is completely staffed by dedicated volunteers whose goal is to offer support to other parents of multiples and to provide the best opportunities to share and learn about dealing with and raising our unique families. We hope to be an important part of your journey whether you’re parents to be, new parents, or experienced parents of multiples. We’re only an email or phone call away if you need us and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
