If you're not high risk, you're best of going to a birthing center or a home birth and having yourself a nice little water birth. It's great! The water, the other tools, and the staff/doulas work for pain management. Take a Bradley class or hynobirth class to help with pain also.\n\nThis practice is not suited for normal births. One of my friends got a routine episiotomy there, is this 1950 for crying out loud? \n\nThey always induce if you go over your EDD.\n\n40% of inductions lead to c/s, and of those that don't, they lead to fetal distress because epidurals slow down labor. One of my friends had to get forceps to get her baby out, the other one's baby had breathing problems and had to go to the NICU. This shouldn't be happening, women are designed by nature to deliver babies!

My wife and I used the Women's Specialists for our first child because she was going to be coming to Houston very late in her pregnancy from out of state, and few people would accept us. We were very happy with our physician, but the wait times to get into to see her were just ridiculous. I don't think there was a single time that we didn't wait at least 2 hours from the time our appointment was scheduled.\r\n\r\nIt became so unbearable that as soon as our baby was born, we switched OB/GYNs. I don't think we will be going back to them, because I can't imagine that a practice can manage to be that over-scheduled and not have the quality of its care negatively affected. In fact, there were a few occassions on which we had to get a procedure done at our OBGYN's request, and we ended up waiting an hour and a half after the procedure was finished just for the doctor to call and release us. They need to get their act together.

Pros: Good Doctor

Cons: Terrible Wait Time

.

Well, sadly, I was disappointed with my experience with the midwives. Everything was fine until the end when they insisted on inducing my labor. If I didn't agree I couldn't remain their patient. As is predictable, the induction, pitocin, etc., all led to a stuck baby and a c-section. I wasn't given an epidural when I broke down and begged for one. I really liked them and hate having to write a negative review. They didn't advocate for the type of birth I wanted and they went straight to medical intervention.

Pros: kind people, good prenatal care

Cons: not completely committed to natural birth

I came to Dr. Zepeda mid pregnancy (25 weeks) because I was displeased with my other doctor. He and Sara were amazing. They made me feel completely comfortable and answered all my questions. I am a patient for life!

Pros: Lots of personal attention, Caring Staff

I was formerly a patient at Women's Specialists and had an okay experience with Dr. Bobo. I didn't care for the way the office was run, with waits up to several hours long. I was hoping for a VBAC but ended up being induced 1 day after my EDD and had several interventions leading up to another c-section. I didn't feel they were as pro-natural childbirth as I had heard. I also had a horrible hospital experience with one of their on-call OBs who is no longer part of the practice.\n\nMany of my friends have loved Dr. Dryden. Unfortunately, we all recently found out that she is performing abortions at Planned Parenthood. I would encourage any moms who value unborn life, to research this yourself before choosing her as your physician. I would personally find issue with a doctor caring for myself and my own unborn baby after taking the lives of many unborn children.\n

After finding out I was pregnant I decided to leave my current OB-GYN and find a practice that had more personalized care. I didn't want to spend my pregnancy seeing a Nurse Practitioner or Physician's Assistant instead of my doctor and then to have someone else entirely deliver my child unless I pre-scheduled an induction or c-section. I was determined to find a Midwife after hearing how they have more dedicated, personalized visits and would be the person that delivered your child instead of some stranger who happened to be on call at the hospital. \n\nI ended up finding The Midwives at the Women's Specialist and they are amazing. They are all board Certified Nurse Midwives so they have gone to school for both Nursing and Midwifery. You spend your pregnancy seeing all 4 midwives so that when you go into labor, you are guaranteed to have someone that knows you, your pregnancy, and your birth plan. They share a practice with 7 OB-GYN's so in case your pregnancy ends up high risk they can transfer you to one of the doctor's. \n\nI appreciate that as a first time mother, they take the time to answer all my questions, spend as much time as needed with me on each visit and are on call 24/7. I often get asked if I'm going to be birthing at home or in water because I'm using a midwife. Contrary to popular belief midwives do work at hospitals and deliver babies with lower cesarean rates, lower episiotomy rates, and provide better support than a doctor who simply walks in to catch a crowning child. \n\nI have had a very pleasant, stress-free pregnancy and wish that all women were able to have this kind of dedicated care!

Pros: Personalized care during pregnancy

Dr. Bobo is an exceptional OB-GYN and I am so fortunate that I was able to find her. Throughout my time as her patient, she has been very thorough, informative and nurturing. She has walked me through every step of my pregnancy and has made it less daunting than I thought it would be. Her nursing staff is professional, warm and informative and the follow up is wonderful. In addition to that, she respects her patients' time. I've never waited any longer than 15 or 20 minutes to be seen by her and for me, that speaks volumes. I would highly recommend Dr. Bobo to anyone seeking an OB-GYN, but especially anyone who is experiencing pregnancy for the first time.

Pros: Thorough, Excellent Bedside Manner, Timely

I transferred care to the midwives when I was 36 weeks pregnant due to my former physician scheduling induction at 37 weeks. I did not want to be induced and there was no medical reason for the induction. My first visit was with Titi, who spent more time in one visit than my former doctor had spent with us during the entire pregnancy. The midwives made sure that we met everyone before I reached 40 weeks, which was very nice. I ended up being induced at 41.5 weeks due to being post date and decreasing fluid levels. Titi started my induction and had a very good bedside manner. Theodorah was there for the rest of my labor and delivery. I cannot say enough positive things about her. I had a very healthy 8lb. 9oz. baby boy. I never had to remind them of my birth plan, it was followed very closely without me ever mentioning it. The only changes from it were either initiated by me or were medically necessary. I felt as though my husband and I were able to make decisions with Theodorah's guidance. She gave us options and let us choose. My labor progressed slowly and we tried everything to kick start it before using pitocin. I felt very comfortable with the care I was receiving the whole time. I would highly recommend using the midwives.

\r\nI'm patient of Dr. Kimberly Bobo for 8 month of my pregnancy.\r\nShe is fantastic and office is great too. Thw waiting time is normal as for any other OBG offices. Things can get preaty chaotic scpesialy if the doctor is at the delivery and you had a luck to wait. \r\nDr. Bobo is always organized and give attention, you have all the trime ask your questions as long as you have it. Just prepare them in advance and put them out on the paper. Even without waiting, you can forget what ever you came for sometimes. Depence where your mind is and sometimes it is very hard to remember when you are under the stress.\r\n\r\nI'm delivering with Dr. Kimberly Bobo, and thanks God, i feel so confident about her and her decision and tha she realy cares otherwise, by now, i will be lossing my mind over delivery. I will post further review some time after delivery. \r\nBut the botoom line is Dr. Kimberly Bobo is fantastic doctor. I'm very glad that i end up with her...and office is VERY PROFESSIONAL And organize. It is a good feel to be there.....

After discovering I was pregnant with our second child, a new friend of mine referred me to her OB-GYN, Dr. Damla Dryden. We were new to Houston and appreciated a good referal. When I called for my first appointment, the receptionist politely suggested another doctor see me since I had not had my first official pregnancy exam and I would have to wait a couple of weeks to see Dr. Dryden. Usually, I would comply. But something told me to insist on seeing Dr. Dryden, which I did. I did not mind the wait since I felt great and everything seemed to be going well with my pregnancy (I was approx. 10 weeks along). Somehow, we were able to get an appointment with Dr. Dryden within a week! The night before my appointment, I started spotting very lightly. Recognizing the symptoms, I immediately panicked because I had miscarried once before. While my husband tried to reassure me, I couldn't help but remember the agonizing experience. My worst fears were realized on the way to the doctor, when I started hemorrhaging. I waited a short while in the waiting room before being seen by Dr. Dryden and her medical staff. Unlike my first experience, with two agonizing emergency room trips, poor bedside manners and a DNC after all; Dr. Dryden showed compassion, professionalism and HEART! She performed the procedure right there and then, sparing me any further physical pain and discomfort. All the while, she and her staff were kind, helpful, compassionate and displayed utmost bedside courtesy. She obviously loves what she does and is extremely professional and proficient! I have since had several follow-up visits and each experience has been consistently excellent! She's the best doctor I have ever known!!!!

I love Dr. Bobo. She is young and really listens to your needs. Dr. Bobo believes that c-sections should only be donein necessary situations. She doesnot believe in elective c-sections. I had to be induced due to acid in my urine. After two days of induction and my water being broken I was unable to make in progress. I ended up having a c-section. Dr. Bobo did everything that she could to help me have a natural birth, but eventhough we had to do a c-section it was a great experience. I live in Katy, and she is well worth the drive to the Medical Center.

I have been a patient of Dr. Dryden's for 3.5 or 4 years now and was recommended by a nurse-friend before I had my daughter. She's not only very professional towards her patients but also extremely caring and compassionate. Over Labor Day weekend 2.5 years ago or my due date, I had very mild contractions and the on-call MD was going to send me home to wait for them to become more severe before going back to the hospital. When he called Dr. Dryden, she told him to have me stay at the hospital and get ready to induce labor! She came in personally that day to deliver my daughter and came around the hospital to check on me the very next day - Labor Day Sunday. I just wish that all the MDs can be as caring and compassionate as Dr. I Dryden. I just love her!

I was a young mother. I was scared and nervous dr. Dryden made me feel very comfortable, and her staff is there to greet you with a warm welcome. My birth experience was really easy and I was very comfortable. I owe it all to the best OB/GYN in houston.

I fortunately found Dr. Zepeda about 26 years ago when I had a tubal infection and several doctors overlooked the issue. He carefully explained the possible causes of my symptoms before the exam using pictures to explain the facts. I changed doctors once because of insurance but came back regardless of iinsurance coverage.

I have been seeing Dr. Dryden for three years. I had just moved to Houston, and trying to find an ob/gyn seemed overwhelming because there are so many! My friend gave me a recommendation. Dr. Dryden is so professional and caring. She takes time to answer all your questions and explains everything. Last week, I had a miscarriage at 13 weeks. She scheduled me for a D&C that same day. She is so compassionate. My husband is so impressed. She even called me at home this week just to check how I was feeling! I respect her so much for her skill, professionalism and compassion.

My wife wanted to have a natural chilbirth. I was very supportive, but worried that we would end up crumbling and letting other people decide how her labor would go. The midwives do a great job of getting toknow each couple and help decide a realistic birthplan. Our labor experience was great (easy for me to say right!). Our midwife did a wonderful job of keeping us both calm and letting us enjoy the birth of our daughter. I recommend the midwives to anyone who is even thinking of getting pregnant.
