Pregnancy is a time of many emotions that change at the drop of a hat. It can also be a time when some women may experience more serious emotional symptoms that need to be treated.

Last Saturday, Charlotte, a beautiful baby gift was born in Houston, making her parents very proud. Her debut was a heartwarming and much-anticipated one for everyone at Texas Children's Hospital. Charlotte had been diagnosed with myelomeningocele, also known as spina bifida or open neural tube defect (NTD) while still in her mother's womb.

My husband and I were surprised last November when the doctors found a 2nd heartbeat at my 6-week ultrasound. At the time we had an 18-month old little boy so the thought of doing what we did with him twice seemed like an impossibility.
