Michelle Bernard – President

mish

Michelle, Brad and big brother Edward joined the LMBA in the Fall of 2014 when they found out they were expecting their identical twins. Michelle, herself, is an identical twin and has firsthand knowledge of what it means to be a twin, but little knowledge on how to raise twins. The continual support they received from the LMBA and the multiple-birth community has been amazing! The friends you gain as a mum of multiples are truly in a league of their own! With the support of the LMBA, Michelle was able to breastfeed the twins well past three and half years. Michelle has been a member of the Parent Outreach Committee and then moved into the role of Social Co-Chair in 2016. More recently, Michelle became LMBA President. In her new position, she received both the Multiple Births Canada Making a Difference Award (MADA) and the Dionne Award while attending the 2019 MBC conference. 2019 also brought the loss of Michelle’s identical twin sister and she is currently learning to navigate life’s journey without her twin.
Welcome to an amazing association and all of the joys that come with raising multiples!

Erika Kafka- Secretary

Erika and her husband Adam joined the LMBA back in 2008 while expecting their dizygotic (fraternal) sons. As first-time parents who were newer to the London area, the LMBA was instrumental in setting up a support system for after their boys’ arrival. Erika quickly found life-long friendships in four LMBA mothers with whom she spent her maternity leave. Though they had very little in common at first glance, all of these women gave birth to twins, as their first children, within six months of one another, and that alone drew them to one another for support and advice. These relationships encouraged Erika to volunteer within the association as she wanted more parents to feel the warmth and support that she had felt.
Over the last 12 years, Erika has volunteered on the Parent Outreach Committee, the Sale Committee, as LMBA Secretary and as both President and Past President. Erika was able to partner with the Early Year’s Centre in Ilderton to support a Multiple Births Family Playgroup for 10 years, ending in February of 2020. Co-owner of Bellies2Babies, Erika works as a doula offering London’s only Multiple Birth Prenatal Class as well as private breastfeeding consults for mother’s of multiples. (Check out the LMBA discount list for a standing discount with Bellies2Babies.)
Throughout the years, Adam and Erika’s family has grown and they are now the proud parents to four young men and a beautiful daughter! In 2019, Erika resumed the role of LMBA Secretary and is thoroughly enjoying introducing new members to the LMBA community!

Kassandra Hebert – Treasurer

Kassandra

My husband and I relocated to London from Kingston for my job in the fall of 2018. Along with us came our twin boys Killian and Quintin (who were born in 2016), our 2 dogs, and 2 cats – I suppose you could say we have a thing with pairs. I stumbled upon the LMBA in the summer of 2019 and couldn’t be happier that I did. Finding the support of other twin parents and insight on locally available supports and services has been invaluable. I have recently taken on the position of treasurer and I look forward to getting to know even more of our members at upcoming events!

Trish Aarts – Sale Committee Co-Chair

Trish and Pete and big brother Nate became LMBA members in 2011 after the arrival of their twin boys. Meeting other parents of twins at the social events and sales was an amazing gift. We realized that we are all going through the same struggles together. And the support we received was great.  Trish joined the sales committee in 2014 and became co- chair in 2017. She has made some amazing friends and is really looking forward to the upcoming changes at the sales events.
