TTTS GuideTwin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS)

Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) is a rare but life-threatening condition that affects 10 to 15 percent of identical twins that share a placenta (monochorionic twins). TTTS can also occur in triplet or higher order pregnancies with monochorionic twins. If untreated, 90 percent of babies are likely to die. Even with treatment, 50 percent of surviving babies are likely to be disabled or have a long term condition.

We have created a booklet containing information on the warning signs, treatment options and what support is available. Click here to download.
