Information for patients

We hope that it will answer many of your questions but we do realise you may have other questions and concerns.

Support

You may just wish to talk to somebody following your molar pregnancy.

For women who have had a molar pregnancy and who are on follow-up, it is possible to arrange to drop-in to talk face-to-face to help answer any questions about the condition.

There are a number of online resources you which may also find helpful.

New Face-to-Face Support Group for Patients

If you would like to meet other women who have also been diagnosed with a molar pregnancy, to share and discuss experiences, then why not attend our face-to-face support group which meets on the first Tuesday every month.

The support group will be facilitated by one of the specialist nurses in Sheffield.

If you are interested in joining the group, please contact us on sht-tr.trophoblastic@nhs.net or telephone: 0114 226 5205
