Welcome to TTTS Parents and the stories of our experiences with Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome.
This blog was created as a place for parents to share their stories of TTTS; memories, hopes, fears, pain, joy, grief and celebrations. It is updated and maintained by the TTTS Support Team. All experiences and outcomes are welcome here.

What I Wish I Knew 2019
Thank you to everyone who participated in our campaign “What I Wish I Knew 2019” for TTTS Awareness month. If you would like to see the photos with their stories on our Facebook page, please click here. Or you can watch the video below.
We believe that through our stories we can build community, raise awareness and improve the level of care for all future TTTS families.
Wave of Light 2019
To honor and remember all the babies lost to TTTS, TAPS, TRAP, SIUGR and their complications we created our first Wave of Light video in 2019 for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, October 15th. These babies are just a small number of the babies lost every year to these pregnancy complications.
In 2019 we wanted to make sure that the fathers in our community and their experiences of TTTS were acknowledged. We had a group of courageous men who participated in this awareness campaign and shared some of their thoughts and experiences on the deaths of their babies.
