Central Coast Mothers of Multiples

If you are a mother of multiples or about to become one, you are in the right place. We are a community of mothers who have come together to support one another through these crazy times that only we can understand. There is something different about being mom of multiples–much less sleep, much more work and much busier schedules, but it is also much more rewarding.

Our club not only offers emotional support, we are a foundation of new friendships and tons of fun which includes weekly walks, gymnastics gymboree, arts and crafts, trips to local museums and zoos and so much more.

Lauren H. Persil, President of CCMOM
