The Berggren family reunited with the team that jumped into action when their twins were diagnosed with a life-threatening condition while they were still in utero.

When Kelli was 18 weeks pregnant, she received the news that the twins were facing twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. The condition impacts the blood flow between twins who share a placenta.

The parents were quickly referred to Riley Children’s Health, where the fetal intervention team was able to help.

Dr. David Streitman, and the rest of the team, carefully planned and performed a fetal surgery on the babies.

The twins are now five months old and doing well. Kelli, and her husband Justin, made the trip back to Riley to thank the team for all their hard work.
