Patient Story: Taelor Brown

Providing Taleor and her unborn child what they needed most: hope.

Parkland provided Taelor with the prenatal care she needed and the result she wanted more than anything: the birth of a healthy baby girl.

What would you do if you were facing a devastating diagnosis? When Taelor Brown was diagnosed with a dangerous fallopian tube pregnancy, she turned to Parkland. “My mom told me I needed to get a second opinion, so I went to Parkland,” Taelor remembered.

With more than 12,000 deliveries each year, Parkland provides access to comprehensive prenatal care to a racially diverse mix of financially challenged expectant moms just like Taelor. The hospital’s neonatal mortality rates are among the lowest in the country, partly because we provide prenatal care to 97% of women who deliver with us.

In Taelor’s case, a second ultrasound revealed that she was not experiencing a fallopian tube pregnancy after all. Her baby was in the womb and growing fine. Right away, Parkland provided Taelor with the prenatal care she needed and the result she wanted more than anything: the birth of a healthy baby girl.

“Everyone I came in contact with at Parkland was so calm and peaceful, they calmed me down,” Taelor said about her delivery experience. “Everything was kind of perfect.”

Parkland continued to be there for Taelor through Dallas Healthy Start and health education programs to ensure her daughter Zen had a great start in life. “I had a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby, thanks to Parkland,” Taelor said.
