about

Twin-to-Twin is one twenty-nine-year-old mother’s harrowing and heartwarming adventure through a high-risk twin pregnancy. But this isn’t only a book about pregnancy. It’s also an inspirational story to which all women can relate, especially when moving forward through any type of adversity. Here’s what happened… One minute Crystal was sitting at a candlelight dinner in Paris with her husband. The next she was back home in Houston, sitting in her Ob-Gyn’s office concerned that she was having a second miscarriage. That wasn’t the news he delivered. Instead, she found out she was pregnant with twins! Since Crystal and her husband Ed already had a two-year-old daughter, Abigail, she couldn’t imagine why mothering twins would be all that different. But, after a family vacation at the beach, she finds out that her twins have a life threatening condition called Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome. That means that Baby B is transfusing blood (disproportionately) to Baby A. Houston, we have a problem! Her OB says that Crystal is too high risk to let out of his sight, so he sends her to the 5th floor of the Houston Medical Center for the duration of her pregnancy. Sitting alone in her hospital bed, Crystal wonders how she is going to pass the next few weeks, away from her husband and precious daughter. She soon finds out as she embarks on an emotional rollercoaster—from late night emergency ultrasounds to hospital baby blessings, sprinkled with comic relief from nurses and hospital staff. Twin-to-Twin is a raw and inspirational story filled with tenderness, vulnerability and humor. It chronicles the wildest, most terrifying and challenging year of Crystal’s life, which is also the most beautiful and eye opening. Her hope is that it will bring strength to other women dealing with their own personal trials and tragedies, so they can also triumph.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best twin pregnancy book I have found so far... Full of very useful information for women carrying multiples. As it seems to be the way with these types of books, it is geared towards the American health care system. Ignore those parts, and most of the book is very useful. A Canadian addition would be amazing.
