Mamas on Bedrest: A Story of Twin to Twin Transfusion SyndromeJanuary 20th, 2012
A little more than 6 years ago, Jenya Cassidy thought that she was finished having children. So imagine her surprise when she learned that she was not only pregnant, but pregnant with twins! Jenya’s surprise turned to shock when she learned that her twins had Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS), a rare disorder of identical twins in which they share the same placenta. Advised to abort the pregnancy, Jenya believed any odds that her babies could live were good odds, so she did her own research, assembled her own “dream team” and with their help fashioned a course of action that resulted in 2 little girls at 33 1/2 weeks.
