To Local Clubs Using Big Tent

A Straw Polling was done to ask what local clubs were using to conduct business and communicate with their members. The majority of these polled use Google and their GSuite products. Listed below is a very brief description of how this service can be used. This service tends to be user friendly and easy to set up. We encourage local clubs that are currently using Big Tent to look into this service and other service options available. 

  • Board members can have a unique Gmail account in addition to main email addresses. 
  • Clubs can store all official minutes, agendas and club documents using  Google Storage and set this up with your Secretaries Gmail account.  PDF versions of minutes can then be distributed to the General and Executive Boards as needed and appropriately. 
  • Board Members can capture procedures and checklist using personal Gmail accounts and then share those documents broadly with all the General and Executive Boards as appropriate. 
  • Google Calendar is easy to set up and user friendly for members.
  • Clubs official membership list can be kept in a Google Sheet that is updated as needed on a monthly basis.  Clubs Membership lists for events and/or submitting to Multiples of America can be created from the master sheet.  This list can also help clubs sync up with member website accounts and the member mailing list in MailChimp if needed. 

These are only a few highlights and benefits using Google and GSuite services. The only negative response received was pertaining to larger clubs when sending a mass email to members. One club stated that Google wanted to consider them a business and charge a fee. This club was able to fix this issue by sending emails to members in smaller batches.

Multiples of America also uses Google for certain services and have found it to be efficient and user friendly.

Please Consider participating in this Global Initiative!

Please take a moment to read this information and participate in this Global Initiative!

In this world-first initiative, we are giving twins and multiples the opportunity to steer future twin and multiple-birth health research in the direction that matters to you.Help us to identify the top research priorities for twins and their families to enjoy optimal health and well being.

We are launching the Global Twins and Multiples Priority Setting Partnership with TAMBA UK, and St George’s University of London.  This initiative seeks to identify the top 5-10 priorities for research into twins’ and multiples’ health. Ultimately,our aims are to save lives and to improve long-term health outcomes for multiples.  

We believe there is insufficient attention given to the specific health needs of multiple-birth families even though the number of multiple births has increased overtime. 

It is important that decisions about future research priorities don’t rest with researchers or government funding bodies alone. Our partnership wishes to hear the voices of all stakeholders in multiple-birth care – twins, higher-order multiples, their parents and families, GPs, obstetricians, pediatricians, midwives, maternal health nurses and educators.  

Ensure your voice is heard by filling out an initial 15-minute online survey. You’ll be asked to nominate up to three important unanswered research questions on the health of multiples relating to issues such as pregnancy, birth, parenting, childhood development, diseases, emotional and mental well being etc.

You can complete the survey or find out more information by clicking on this linkThe survey closes soon so please take it ASAP!

We would also appreciate if you could share this survey with others in your circle e.g.  twin friends and families, multiple-birth clubs, your GP and specialists. It is open to everyone who supports twin lives and well being.

Let’s work together to identify the most pressing issues needing research, and to make sure research funding and resources are going where they are most needed. Generations of multiple-birth families – now and in the future – are counting on us.

Many thanks,

Monica Rankin

ICOMBO Chair

Twin to twin transfusion syndrome

Twin to twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) is a rare condition that occurs during a twin pregnancy when blood moves from one twin (the “donor twin”) to the other (the “recipient twin”) while in the womb. TTTS is a complication that specifically occurs in identical (monozygotic) twin pregnancies that share the same “egg” sac (monochorionic) that may or may not share the same amniotic sac (monoamniotic). TTTS usually develops between 15 and 26 weeks of pregnancy. The donor twin may be born smaller, with paleness, anemia, and dehydration. The recipient twin may be born larger, with redness, too much blood, and increased blood pressure, resulting in an increased risk for heart failure. Treatment may require repeated amniocentesis during pregnancy. Fetal laser surgery may be done to interrupt the flow of blood from one twin to the other. After birth, treatment depends on the infant’s specific symptoms. The donor twin may need a blood transfusion to treat anemia. The recipient twin may need to have the volume of body fluid reduced. This may involve an exchange transfusion. Medications may be given to treat heart failure in the recipient twin, per the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services/National Institutes of Health

Approximately 15% of Identical Twin pregnancies develop TTTS.
