Multiples Expert: Karen Moise, RN

Karen Moise has been a registered nurse for nearly 30 years, specializing in fetal intervention for multiples at risk of suffering from Twin-to-Twin Transfusion Syndrome. Currently, she's a member of the fetal intervention team at Texas Children’s Hospital, along with her husband of 24 years, Dr. Kenneth Moise, Jr. M.D. Together they share a passion for ensuring the best care is given to each and every patient that walks through the doors of Texas Children's Hospital. Guiding her patients through every step of their pregnancy and birth, Karen even keeps in touch with many of her patients from all over the country well after they leave her care.

When she’s not helping new and expectant moms or keeping in touch with her previous patients, Karen spends time with her three young daughters, who always keep her laughing. She's also an active blogger, sharing stories of the families she meets along the way, and lending insight into her own life as a nurse at Texas Children's Fetal Center on her blog, Miracles of Multiples
