Natural Childbirth

Seeking support for natural childbirth? We have the experience to guide you. Our patient epidural rate is about 60%. We support our patients through whatever birth method and level of pain medication necessary.

We Love Doulas

We are wholehearted fans of doulas. Drs. Worth & Mussalli consider doulas to be a gift from heaven for any labor, an infusion of positive energy, and caring. In our view, they are an essential component of the team.​

Gentle Cesarean Section

If a cesarean delivery is needed, rest assured that we are meticulous experienced surgeons with outstanding results. We have adopted our colleague's “gentle cesarean” technique as our own.

At Village Obstetrics, we track some of the quality measures advised by the National Quality Forum, The Joint Commission, Healthy People 2010/2020, and ACOG as well as some of our own. Tracking data supports transparency and self-reflection. Numbers are only a tool and are never a rigid goal. Numbers help us think about the care we give and help us learn and improve.
