December's International TTTS Awareness Month

International TTTS Awareness Month is an  international collaboration around the world founded by The TTTS Foundation to shine a light on the fight against twin to twin transfusion syndrome, including TAPS (twin anemia polycythemia sequence), SIUGR (selective intrauterine growth restriction), and TRAP (twin reversed arterial perfusion sequence).

TTTS a disease of a shared placenta where thousands of identical twin babies receive unequal amounts of blood during pregnancy and can both go into heart failure.  December’s International TTTS Awareness Month, includes World TTTS Awareness Day on December 7th, World TAPS Awareness Day on December 8th, World SIUGR Awareness Day on December 9th and World TRAP Awareness Day on December 10.  Please read more about TAPS, SIUGR and TRAP here on our site.

We are passionate about educating the public of the risks of being pregnant with monochorionic twins and triplets and directing them to The TTTS Foundation for immediate help and information about their pregnancies.  Please join in our efforts and read more about each awareness day for more information.  Join us on social media @tttsfoundation and facebook.com/tttsfoundation
