The TAPS Support Foundation's mission is to empower all parents of monochorionic twins to advocate for appropriate care backed by the latest research. Vision: A standardized, routine set of guidelines adopted around the world for diagnosing and caring for monochorionic twin pregnancies and making TAPS education a priority for all. Not all twins are equal. The complications associated with monochorionic twins inspire our foundation to raise awareness of the differences in twin pregnancies and advocate for routine, standardized screening protocols worldwide. We want to bring positive change to the way twins are diagnosed, cared for, and improve their long-term outcomes. This starts with raising awareness of Twin Anemia Polycythemia Sequence, advocating for policy changes worldwide, and creating meaningful dialogues between politicians, researchers, doctors, and TAPS patients. Our foundation is dedicated to making a positive impact on the world of monochorionic twins, through education, connections, and research for doctors, families, and policymakers. We challenge outdated guidelines, empower parents to ask questions and advocate for the best care before, during, and after monochorionic twin pregnancy, and work towards creating better outcomes for twins worldwide.
