Serving moms of multiples in the Macomb County area for over 50 YEARS!

Who Are We?

Macomb County Mothers of Multiples is an organized support and social group, organized by dedicated volunteers, for moms and expectant moms of twins, triplets, and more. The purpose of our organization is to offer support, encouragement, and friendship to moms in the unique situations that we encounter with multiple pregnancy and raising multiples. We also provide information unique to multiple birth situations, and we provide an opportunity to socialize. In addition to monthly meetings, social events for moms and their families are planned throughout the year. We serve Macomb County and its surrounding communities, and we are members of MOMOTC (Michigan Organization of Mothers of Twins Club).

MCMOM was founded in 1962 when six women from Macomb County got together to share what, back then, was a unique experience - having twins. Since then, we have gone through many changes: from originally meeting in a home to chat, to a membership high of 102, in 2001, to a highly organized and very busy club of today. Our diverse membership consists of new moms with young children as well as moms celebrating 5 to 45+ years of membership!

Our mission is to promote interest in the knowledge of multiples, to help new mothers of multiples through the exchange of ideas about caring for their new babies, to provide an equipment exchange for members, and to concern ourselves with the problems of multiples.
