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 physicians better, we decided to sit down with them and do a short Q&A.
