A Renewed Hope: Joselin Lopez's Story

Joselin Lopez and daughter

UW Health Services

Obstetrics and Gynecology

Joselin Lopez first found out she was pregnant in 2006.


Living in Jefferson, she had started seeing Dr. Brenda Jenkin at the UW Health East Towne clinic in Madison.


During the initial part of her pregnancy, she had few to no complications. But at 25 weeks, Joselin was unable to carry her baby to term. Dr. Jenkin was very comforting and compassionate during this extremely emotional time.


In 2008, Joselin and her husband found themselves to be expecting parents again. Joselin returned to Dr. Jenkin for her care and had a normal pregnancy.


To the joy and excitement of Joselin and her husband, Sophia Lopez was born on March 8, 2009.
