Inducing and C-sections
Posted on October 19th, 2015
How many other moms have been diagnosed with "big baby"? This doctor (and technicians) have been saying my baby is going to be really big since I was 34 weeks. They are sure to tell me that each time I go in for a check-up. At 36 weeks, Dr. Rowan started talking to me about c-sections or inducing rather than letting nature take it's course. I am not having any health problems, yet they are suggesting that I be induced at 39 weeks. When I said I didn't want to be induced she then suggested a C-section if the baby is huge. I had to ask how reliable are ultrasounds to measure a baby's weight? She said it was not really reliable but it's the only thing we have. It can be off by 1-3 pounds. I don't like that this provider isn't willing to go the distance for a vaginal birth and is into scaring me (and my husband) into something I don't want. If you want to do things naturally, I would not recommend Dr. Rowan.

My husband and I had had a lot of bad luck with conception and finding a doctor. Dr. Rowan listened to us, performed a lap on me and we were pregnant within 2 cycles. Down side to dealing w Goodman & Partridge as a whole: unless I schedule my due date, I most likely will not have Dr Rowan. I am unable to have an epidural so I would prefer no interventions unless baby or myself are in danger and though I feel most of the doctors I've met in the offices are excellent, I don't feel they will be able or willing to meet my needs for a natural birth.It is so convenient that they have so many docs and locations but at the same time it hinders personal care and often I have been treated unkindly by staff that I don't deal with more regularly. And most of the u/s techs I have come across were pretty rude to me.If you plan to go natural, I would suggest a different doctor but Dr. Rowan is knowledgable and caring!
i like my OB/GYN

she is very easy to communicate with and i really appreciate that she worked with me through my whole pregnancy on high blood pressure problem. All other doctors wanted me to be on pills and she gave me a chance to get it under control on my own, and for that i really grateful to her! She does listen and helps you make the right decision and i never had a problem with scheduling appointments with her! I would definitely recommend her to all of my friends! Thank you Dr. Rowan
Most UN-Compassionate OB in the Valley!

After waiting over an hour for my appt. only to find out I had to get rescheduled due to a scheduling snafu in the office... a nurse asked me if I had any pressing issues I needed to discuss with the dr. prior to my resched. appt. I mentioned to her that what with my hyperemisis (severe nausea & vomiting during pregnancy)... I had been suffering a migraine the last 3 days, I thought being dehydrated was contributing. The nurse went back to relay the info. to Dr. Rowan. She returned and said. "Dr. Rowan said she's not a headache dr." I just looked at her; stunned. I asked her if she was serious. She nodded. I just couldn't believe that she didn't care about the well-being of my unborn child. She wasn't going to bother to see if dehydration was a factor... she wasn't going to give me any treatment options... nothing! Needless to say, I've found a new OB!
