Building our first house, my husband changed jobs, I began my Master’s program and we were trying to have our first baby. We knew we were taking on a lot; but never imagined what would soon unfold.On Father’s Day 2016, my husband Mike and I learned we were expecting! Come early October we had our anatomy ultrasound and left beaming with photos of a beloved baby girl. The following afternoon, I had missed a call and voicemail concerning our ultrasound.

We were so excited to find out in October 2015 that we were expecting our second child. We had been trying for a couple of years and were beginning to think it wouldn’t happen. Everything was progressing wonderful and we found out that the following November we would have our first and only boy. We went in for our routine 20 week anatomy ultrasound and left thinking everything was perfect, like with our first.

In 2012, at 25 weeks pregnant with my fourth child, I received terrifying news – he needed to be delivered immediately. My preeclampsia had rapidly progressed to eclampsia, and our yet-unnamed little boy would need to enter the world in July instead of November.As frightened as I was, I clung to the fact I was being transferred from our community hospital to the then-new Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women.

At Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women, we care for women and children from preconception, to long after the birth of the child. We are dedicated to obstetrics, gynecology and fetal intervention because we know to improve the health of children, we must start with mothers. To help you get to know our clinicians better, we decided to sit down with them and do a short Q&A.

We first heard about Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women when our doctors called them for advice on our case. Our identical twin girls were 20 weeks along and had finally been diagnosed with twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS). Our girls shared a placenta. One twin was getting all of the blood flow from my placenta, and the other twin was getting hardly anything.
