This is an information, research and support site for those diagnosed with Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome



Twin To Twin Transfusion Syndrome is one of the major arising concerns in any twin, triplet or higher order pregnancy.

If not treated, severe Twin To Twin Transfusion Syndrome has a mortality rate close to 100%.

Many pregnancies go undiagnosed!


This Web Site offers information about Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome including information on the diagnosis, treatment, pregnancy, birth and  post-natal outcome!

Through the many views of parents and medical practitioners it provides comprehensive information and facts about Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome.

The information contained in these pages are collective, from a number of resources and contain the opinion of experts in the field of Prenatal Fetal Medication, Gynaecologists, Medical Practitioners and Obstetricians.


TTTS cannot be prevented therefore an early diagnosis of this disorder in an identical twin pregnancy can possibly save the lives of one or both babies.

Multiple Births, Prenatal Education and Bereavement Support

Although a joyous time, there are sometimes risks in multiple births. Hence this Web Site also offers bereavement support for parents who have lost one, more or all of their multiple birth children during pregnancy or in infancy.


Being a parent is an exciting experience and being a parent of multiples is especially rewarding. In terms of challenges, there are few equals and there is much to know and learn. I am sure that you have many questions that need to be answered and this Web Site will hopefully aid you in this process.
