She is a terrible doctor, and she completely lacks compassion. She will lie to you to get her out of her office. Do not trust this woman.

I have gone to her for about 10 years. She delivered my baby 5 years ago by emergency c section. She probably should have just done the c section to begin with instead of letting me try a natural birth, but she thought it would be ok and she was trying to please me. I don't blame her for the complications we encountered and I look at it as even though we went the long way around she got my baby here alive...it could have turned out much differently, and I will always be thankful to her of that. I've never thought she lacks compassion. She has always taken the time to sit with me and explain things to me, and listen to me. The first time she saw me after my baby was born I hugged her and told her thank you and we both cried, thankful for the way things had turned out.

No one is perfect, and no doctor can please everyone. I for one wouldn't go to anyone else.
Peace

My friend had her and she was awful! She let my friend be in labor for over 23 hrs and my friend begged for c section. When it was time to push she called her lazy. Her baby ripped her very badly and caused her some internal bleeding. Her baby had an awful bruise on her head. I felt so bad for them. Find another doctor!

This is exactly what Woodard recently did to my niece. She's still in the hospital and has received 3 units of blood so far. Her baby may not make it. This so called Dr. needs to be reported.

23 hours for labor isn't that long, especially if its your first child. The only reason most babies are born faster is because hospital is a business and they want the baby born so you both will be discharged earlier and that bed will be open for someone else. So most doctors will give you pitocin which will give stronger, faster contractions. And most babies are born with bruises on they're head and most women will either rip or require an epesiotomy. Too many doctors are quick to give c sections now and the only reason one should be performed is if the mother or child are at risk. Its called LABOR for a reason. With that being said, I don't know if Dr.woolard is a good doctor or not, but if your going to judge someone it should be for the right reasons, not because of totally normal occurrences.

23 hours of labor isn't that long, especially if it is their first child. The only reason more don't go long is because a hospital is a business and they want the baby born quicker to get the mother and child discharged to have that space open for someone else. So most doctors will administer pitocin, which gives stronger and longer contraction. It is harder on the mother and child. And no, doctors shouldn't give a c section unless the mother it child are at risk. Many are too quick to perform them, which has a much longer recovery time for the mothers. Also, most babies are born with some sort of bruising. They are squeezing their head through the pubic bone.
That being said, I don't personally know if dr. Woolard is good or bad. But if you are going to judge someone, you should be informed that those, as you described them, are actually normal occurrences.

I have had 2 kids myself. I know the process of delivery. Babies do come out with a "cone" head. But if ur pelvic bone wont let ur baby out and you doctor tries it anyway which causes you problems is where i have problem. She pushed for over 21/2 and got really tired. The doctor told her ahe didnt even try to push, she was being.lazy. To me the baby comes first!

Some ppl don't push like they r suppose to. There is a certain way to speed up process. She delivered my first child and was great, nice, and compassionate. I was in labor for 14 hours when she came in and she was the on call doc coming from a c section and still had time to small talk with me. Very nice and no complaints here

I went to Dr Woolard for both of my pregnancies! Truthfully, she tells u how it is. I went into labor with my first child at 6 months and was in constant pain until I gave birth. Dr Woolard took great care and made sure that I was alright. I wouldnt go into any other obgyn.

Dr Woolard delivered all three of my children. As well as preformed my hysterectomy. I agree with the comment that she tells you like it is. I loved this about her. She didn't sugar coat anything! She was amazing in all aspects office visits (I didn't feel rushed), delivery (I had one normal, one induction due to preeclampsia, and one emergency c-section due to my son not moving), and bedside manner ( excellent before during and after delivery). She even came to check on us in NICU many times when she was on the floor as my youngest was a preemie. She's amazing, if not for her my youngest probably wouldn't be alive! Unfortunately even though I can no longer have children I wouldn't go to a different OB-GYN.

3 years ago I had complications with my pregnancy. My doctor was out of the office that day and she had to break the news to me. The news that your baby has a life threatnening birth defect is never an easy thing to handle or tell someone. She was very compassionate and told me everything that I needed to know. I would defintely trust her with the care of my child and myself.(She is not covered under my insurance though.)

I currently see Dr. Carns at Cape Care for Women and she is excellent. I probably called more than I should when I was pregnant but her and her nurse Brittany are Fabulous! When we found out that I was pregnant with the child I just had, Dr. Carns cried tears of joy with me.(Due to miscarrying at 27 weeks with my prior pregnancy.) I can not praise her and her staff enough. Thank you Dr. Carns!!

my wife is patient who replied earlier. the doctor knew she was to big for my wife to deliever. she let her try anyway she only got the head out and my little girl got stuck. they could not free her so two nurses got on the bed to push down on my wifes pelvis while wollard grabed my babies head and shoved her back in. they took her to c section and got her out she spent nine days in the nicu because of the birth if she would have done the c section first their would not have a horrible birth.

Exactly!!!! Labor is hard and complications happen with almost every single birth. She's a good doctor if she doesn't everything in her power to keep you from having a C-section. I had a C-section after 28 hours of labor and 2 hours of pushing. The C-section was terrible to recover from but I'm glad I got to at least try to have a natural birth.
