Helping women with complicated pregnancies
Expecting Hope at a Glance
A Bit of Background
Here at Expecting Hope, we are driven by a goal; to provide resources to expecting mothers with complicated pregnancies.
Our twins were diagnosed with Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS) at 19 weeks in utero with five options; most of which were to pick which baby you would like to survive or to terminate both. Luckily, we found Dr. Ruben Quintero who always sees hope in complicated pregnancies including our own. He performed a procedure on our twins in utero which solved TTTS only to have my water break a few weeks later from the procedure. The hospital wanted to deliver our twins at 22 weeks, which would have been a low survival rate to which Dr. Quintero said absolutely not and performed another procedure to save the girls called an amnio patch. We made it all the way to 34 weeks and 5 days and the twins were born healthy, without any major complications all because this Doctor did not believe in giving up and was determined to think outside the box to save our girls. It is because of him that our twins are alive and because of him that we started this non profit; to give other families the same chance we had.
