    I see Dr. Laura Meritt and she is wonderful and thoughtful and caring. I also see Wendy McGuinty (nurse practitioner) and she is awesome!

      Dr. Reuse was great! He was very to the point and wasn’t overly strict on thing you can and can’t do while pregnant. I highly recommend him!

  2. Damara September 24, 2014 at 8:16 pm #

    Dr. Rush and Dr. Meadows are wonderful! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

  3. Elexa September 24, 2014 at 8:24 pm #

    I love Dr Schnider. She is very open to all the natural things I choose to do when it comes to my health. She was a wonderful dr throughout my first pregnancy and she is very pro natural birth and Bradley. Unfortionantly my daughter was breach and I had to have a csection she did an amazing job. She is my favorite at Hill Country OBGYN!

    Wendy Cutler at North Austin Medical center. She is an amazing ob/gyn. I was blessed to have her during my pregnancy and delivery.

    Dr. Thoppil is simply the most amazing doctor out there. He has delivered all three of my high risk pregnancies and helped us through many losses. I highly recommend him to all my friends and family. He is the best!

  7. Lindsey McGee Irvine September 24, 2014 at 10:37 pm #

    Love Dr Maunder! He is a very patient and calm guy, super laid back but still very professional. I have total faith in his opinion and his abilities.

  8. Katie September 25, 2014 at 8:30 am #

    Dr. Gooch is my hero! After years of suffering needlessly with fibroids, I found Dr. Gooch! He was very thorough and actually listened and my issues are now history.

  9. Rachel September 26, 2014 at 12:43 pm #

    Dr. Phillips is amazing! I had 1 easy pregnancy and 1 really tough one and he was so helpful and dependable no matter the issue. An added bonus is that he’s really good with the Dads! I’d recommend Dr. Phillips to anyone.

    Does anyone have any personal recommendations for birth centers? I am currently trying to decide between OBGYN North’s birth center (I see their doctors on here) and Central Texas Birth Center in Georgetown. Any info would be great! Thanks!

      Hi Caite. I can’t speak to those two centers but I can tell you that I had a great experience using the Austin Area Birth Center (I used the South location, but there is a North one as well.) Its run by midwives with a consulting MD, so it’s fairly crunchy granola. I liked it because it put all my prenatal care, classes, and birth in one bundle. It even included pre and post natal yoga, and baby classes for two years. It was a good fit for us, and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a natural, health-focused path with lots and lots of education. The midwives don’t pull any punches, so it’s a good place for mamas who are ok with getting advice and instruction on things like nutrition, lifestyle etc. I hope this helps. Happy babying!

      I would go to the south birthing center. In the off chance that the birthing center route doesn’t work, the Georgetown hospital is not a place I would wan to go to.

    Dr. Devine with Austin Diagnostic Clinic inside of St. David’s. She was wonderful through my pregnancy.

    Dr Campaigne at Nuture is the best in Austin. In a world of doctors I would recommend her over and over again. My second baby was delivered vbac and without her it would have never happened. She truly believes in her patients and will do anything in her power to make your delivery wishes come true. She truly has a gift. If you are dreaming of a vbac or hoping for a vaginal delivery she is the doctor you are looking for. At Nuture you are not a number, they always take their time with appts and address all your concerns. I live in Lakeway and would drive all the way over, through traffic for their care. I cannot say enough good things. They even do in-home 2 week post delivery visits… who does that?? Love them, cannot say enough good things.. Dr Campaigne is just amazing.

    worked with Dr Caroline Cohen at Austin OBGYN Associates. We actually started working with Dr. Cohen at 20 weeks after having to find a new OB since our first doctor did not see eye to eye about using a doula.  It was not easy to find a doctor whi was willing to agree to a Doula before starting treatment, but luckily I found Dr. Cohen.  Dr. Cohen had a great bed side manner.   She laughed at my husband’s attempts at jokes. She answered all of our questions and was very supportive of our desire for a natural birth.  In the end, our baby did not arrive as scheduled and we had to schedule an induction. Dr. Cohen agreed to schedule at 42 weeks to give our little guy every second to come on his own.  He did not, so we showed up for our induction. While over night at the hospital my contractions started naturally; Pitocin was scheduled to be administered at 7 AM but Dr. Cohen agreed to give us a few more hours to see if I could progress naturally.  At 10 AMthere had not been any additional progress, so the induction process began.  11 hours later our son was born.  In the end our birth did not go as planned, but I really appreciated having a doctor who I could express my concerns to and who was willing to bend hospital protocol and give us the satisfaction of knowing we tried our best to have the natural birth we were wanting.

    Dr. Robert Cohen was a true, true Godsent OBGYN. He supported my choice for an elective C-section, no judgements, no shaming. Just true respect for my decision as a mother. When I was unexpectedly taken off my insurance in the middle of my pregnancy, he pulled strings and had his staff on the phone for days to see what they can do to make sure I can still keep him using the Medicaid that at the time I had no choice but to take even though he didn’t take Medicaid at that time. And he’s literally one of the most kind-hearted people you’d ever meet. Now that I don’t have medical insurance, I go to clinics for my gyn checkups, and haven’t seen him since he delivered Dre in 2009. But the MOMENT I can afford insurance for myself, he’s the first doctor I’m calling.
