The Coastal Parents of Multiples, a member of the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs Inc. (NOMOTC), is celebrating the first Multiple Birth Awareness Month in April.

Throughout the month, CPOM will be reaching out in support of families with twins and supertwins, topped off with a picnic social in Daffin Park set for April 18 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

The focus will be on educating the community on the struggles and challenges of multiple births and how best to either prevent them or get the support and guidance needed.
