Carefully Monitored Pregnancy Results in Healthy Baby

At 32 weeks into her pregnancy, pediatric nurse Christie Husband learned that her unborn baby had only one kidney. Texas Children’s stepped in to provide just the right care.

The groundbreaking for Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands was on the same day that Brooke Husband celebrated her first birthday. For her family, January 31, 2014 was a very special day that closed out a long and often scary year of ups and downs.

At 32 weeks into her pregnancy, pediatric nurse Christie Husband learned that her unborn baby had only one kidney.

The network of care and expertise that sprang up around Christie gave her peace and reassurance. Her obstetrician at Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women immediately engaged specialists at Texas Children’s Maternal-Fetal Medicine Clinic in The Woodlands to carefully monitor her pregnancy.

With the help of this great team, Brooke was born and did not require any additional assistance or even a hospital stay. Her Texas Children’s pediatrician and renal specialist continue to monitor her.
