Ok, TAPS Support Admin Team … Are you quite ok there? Making my MFM my BBFF? What? Are you into the Christmas “Spirit” early?
(admin note: No, we’re not! We’re just really excited about our latest campaign)
This year we want you to make the resolution to make sure your MFM is your BBFF. So let’s talk about what we mean by this.
What is BBFF?
We all know that a BFF is a Best Friend Forever. Do we really want you to be that close and personal with someone like an MFM? Well, maybe not so you’re braiding each other’s hair and gossiping (although if that’s the relationship you have, why not? ), but rather that you build a trusting, open, and honest relationship during your pregnancy.
You deserve to be looked after, that all the appropriate care is done for your pregnancy, and that most importantly, you are being open and honest with each other about all aspects of your pregnancy. Make them your Best Best Friend For pregnancy.
So how can you do that? We’ve come up with a little mantra for you.
Make your MFM your BBFF
And to do this – at each appointment, they should be checking the Brains, Bladder, Fluid and Flow of each baby, and most importantly, discussing the results with you.
It’s as simple as this – Brain – Bladder – Fluid – Flow or … BBFF. The idea is so awesome that we dedicated an entire webpage to it on this site, and made the checklist downloadable so that you can take it to your first appointment to discuss it.
Change the way monochorionic twin pregnancies are handled
We’re pretty focussed on TAPS on this page, but our mission is clear.
To empower all parents of monochorionic twins to advocate for appropriate care backed by the latest research.TAPS Support Mission Statement
Therefore, everyone deserves to have the standard of care their country’s guidelines suggest. You deserve to not only have the minimum standard of care you’re entitled to but exceptional care. If you want more information on how you can advocate, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Besides, there’s nothing wrong with making friends with your MFM. Building trust is an important part of the doctor/patient relationship, and we want you to have a solid, trusting relationship where you know you’re in good hands.
