About Us

Founded in 1956 by the late Rita Lewis of Arlington, MMOTA-Founding Chapter is the original chapter of the state organization known as the Massachusetts Mothers of Twins Association.  We are members of both the state organization, and the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs.

MMOTA-Founding Chapter’s objective is to provide support to mothers of twins, triplets and higher-order multiple births (MOTs) in Boston and surrounding suburbs.  Toward that objective, meetings and other activities are held for the purpose of sharing information and advice pertaining to raising multiple-birth children.

Currently, our membership includes over  mothers of twins, triplets and quadruplets, and our ranks are growing every day.  Some of our members even have two sets of twins!

Through MMOTA-Founding Chapter meetings and events, you will find sound advice, support and friendship from “seasoned” MOTs who have “been there and done that!”  No one knows the trials and tribulations of raising two or more children at a time than does another MOT.
