Information for patients

Trophoblastic disease is an uncommon disorder and we hope that the information available here will answer some of your questions.

Newly diagnosed?

Video: information about GTD for newly registered patients.

You will receive a copy of Molar Pregnancy - Gestational trophoblastic disease (PDF, 346 KB) when you are registered with us.

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


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 virtually to help answer any questions about the condition.

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

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 virtual support group which meets weekly on Tuesdays at 4pm.

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 or telephone: 0114 226 5205

The Miscarriage Association is also offering monthly virtual support groups where partners are also welcome. Email to join –
