The MOST Mission

quintuplets

MOST (Mothers of Supertwins), a community of families, volunteers and professionals founded in 1987, is the leading national nonprofit provider of support, education and research on higher-order multiple births.  MOST's mission is to advocate for quality prenatal care, promote healthy deliveries, and supply information to all multiple birth families in order to  support successful parenting through every phase of their children's development.

Many families contact MOST for preconceptual counseling or early in their pregnancy, then stay in touch throughout the "Bedrest Blues," home uterine monitoring, and possible antepartum hospitalization. One of MOST's main goals is to help make pregnancy easier and decrease anxiety through education from professionals and support from other families who have been there. Following delivery, MOST also helps families address the unique challenges associated with parenting 3, 4,5, or more infants, toddlers, and school-age children.

Free Email NewslettersIn addition to personal support, MOST also conducts medical and psycho/social research annually to help serve our membership better by learning more of their specific needs. Through these national projects we can help educate medical and ancillary support professionals about the unique needs of multiple birth families. Note however, that information on this site is not intended to replace the advice of qualified health care providers.

As in the general population, our membership families often have a variety of challenges and situations not associated with parenting multiples including women/family issues, children with special health or developmental needs, and more. For those families, MOST serves as a conduit during every stage of pregnancy and parenting as well.
