There are a handful of labor and delivery Google reviews for this specific Hospital, with more recent reviews being overwhelmingly positive, and older reviews being negative.  However, I would like to note that the negative reviews centered more around billing frustrations and more than 1 negative review did mention that the Labor & Delivery nurses here were excellent.  If you’re unsure, I suggest searching local Brazos County or College Station Facebook Moms Groups for other mom’s experiences at this Hospital.  Do your research and never be afraid to advocate for yourself!  

Positive Reviews: 

2023: “I gave birth to my first child here & if I could give them 10 stars I would. I was terrified & the delivery was traumatic due to getting sick but the nurses were phenomenal. Every nurse I met treated me like family. My own family still talk about how amazing everyone was. I went in with no expectations but they completely exceeded them. They were caring & patient. My baby ended up in the NICU & although as a first-time mom I was scared, I felt so confident in leaving her in their care. I wish every nurse who helped me the best of luck. & thank y’all for being so sweet with my daughter!”

2023: “For any expecting mama’s out there, I wanted to reach out here and say that the labor and delivery unit was absolutely amazing. Amazing nurses, amazing staff, amazing lactation consultants! They really do everything they can to make you feel comfortable and make it as pleasurable experience as possible.”

2022: “I delivered my second child at Baylor Scott & White, and I was amazed with how comfortable my stay was compared to my first birth at a different hospital. I went into labor during the night and 6 other women walked into the ER in labor around the same time as I did. The hospital staff was incredibly overworked and there was a shortage of space due to the spontaneous burst of laboring women (combined with women that were already there). Despite the crazy workload, I was treated with such care, patience and attentiveness. My doctor was out of town, but the on-call doctor was wonderful. The nurses were the real superheroes that made my experience amazing. I cannot recommend bringing your little one into the world at Baylor Scott and White College Station enough!”

2021: “The Labor and Delivery team has been amazing. Everyone here has been professional, compassionate, and attentive. Would definitely come back for the next baby...but there better not be a next baby. We're done making babies! Really wonderful team of nurses, doctors, and administrators. :)”

2018: “This is the best place to have your baby! The Labor and Delivery department staff is wonderful, they allow you to have an overnight guest your entire stay and even provided one free meal to your guest. They promote bonding and provide extensive help with breastfeeding. I had a c-section and Dr. Do was the best! I was concerned about having a second c-section due to complications in the past but not only did she deliver my baby in a timely manner but I was able to see my baby right after she pulled him out and was able to have skin to skin contact. I would recommend every pregnant mother in the area to have their child here this facility is amazing.”

Negative Reviews:

2021: “I originally loved Baylor Scott and White but as of recent their staffing has terrible attitude. They charge you hundreds for the smallest thing. Financial assistance leaves you on hold for hours (I was on hold for 3 hours as they kept transferring and hanging up on me. Issue was never solved.) Only labor and delivery gets a 9/10 with really good nurses although they have a lot of understaffed employees especially the doctors. Go on your own risk, you could have a good or bad experience.”

2019: “The emergency room staff and pediatric team seem incompetent & like they don’t know what they’re doing. I hear “I don’t know” more often than I’m comfortable with coming from a hospital. I gave 2 Stars because the place is nice and clean and the Labor and Delivery department is amazing!

2019: “Ridiculous billing. Every time I receive my bill I feel like it is a fraud. The hospital is only interested in the money and they can always find new ways to bill you, even for the services that are already fully covered by insurance. They use different service codes to bill you and fool you. And the only answer you'll get from their billing office is: this is how we bill. And there would be no further explanations. Very irresponsible. There are other good health providers in the College Station area that bill you reasonably with transparency. As an expecting mom, I can't imagine myself fighting over piles of outrageous hospital bills and taking care of my baby at the same time, it should be the last thing that I worry about.”

2018: “I had my first baby here, and my mom was the only one with me at the time when I had contractions so she called to make sure they would have a person out waiting to help (contractions were already 2 minutes apart).  When we arrived NO ONE was in sight, so these people waiting in the waiting room ran outside with a wheelchair to help. When we checked in the nurses were SO rude! One lady got in my face and said “Listen to me. When we ask you a question you need to answer!” I am having contractions 2 minutes apart, worst pain in my life, can barely breathe, and they should be respectful and understand that it is NOT easy to talk while you’re having a contraction! The nurses were basically rude the whole time I was in pain and then became nice once I had the epidural because “I was easier to deal with”. They should be more patient when someone is in so much pain. And lastly, I waited awhile for the epidural and when the Dr came in, I heard him telling the nurse “I had to make a quick stop at Chick-fil-a “…while a pregnant woman who is about to give birth is WAITING for you?! The rest of the stay was fine... I DO appreciate all the nurses that took care of me AFTER those first nurses. They were so sweet and helpful. Just not too sure if I really want to have another baby at this hospital or not.”
