PREGNANCY CARE

Joyful & Unhurried

Private practice led by two caring expert obstetricians.

BOARD-CERTIFIED ATTENDING PHYSICIANS

Dr. Mussalli is Board certified in maternal-fetal medicine from Columbia University. He will make a personalized treatment plan for you.​

Many (but not all) of our patients are seeking a vaginal birth with or without medication. We have years of experience with this goal and high success.​

We championed the Gentle (or family-centered) cesarean at Mount Sinai. Because of us, the hospital introduced clear drapes. Gentle cesarean is our standard technique for all cases except urgent emergencies.​

If you had fertility assistance to get pregnant, you will need extra testing. We are experts at IVF needs.

If you have never given birth before, you may have more questions and need extra time in labor. We have all the time you need. ​

Vaginal Birth After Cesarean: If you have had a cesarean for your first birth and want vaginal for your second, we have proven strategies to guide you.​

Being pregnant for the first time over age 35 or 40 benefits from a special approach in regards to focused testing and extra time in labor. The majority of our patients are over 35. ​

Village Obstetrics accepts late transfers. It’s OK to switch late in pregnancy if your provider is not meeting your needs.

Advanced Medical Care with a Personal Touch

The former Chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Dr. George Mussalli is one of the few maternal-fetal medicine specialists who still delivers babies. Dr. Jaqueline Worth brings more than a decade’s experience as an obstetrician. They have delivered thousands of babies in New York City and share a genuine love of obstetrics.
