With few exceptions the pregnant woman's health status is virtually ignored once the twins are determined to have TTTS. Both the doctors and couples focus on the ultrasound findings
and condition of the babies. This booklet is to help you understand ways that mothers can immediately help even right after you have diagnosed them.
There are things that mothers can do to benefit the babies and themselves right away, which may play a role in the outcome of TTTS pregnancies. These are related to changes in diet and activity (see section on Nutrition and Bedrest).
