We recently delivered a wonderful baby girl at Mount Sinai’s labor and delivery unit on the second floor of 1174 5th Avenue, and wanted to give our feedback concerning the wonderful care given.
After having our first girl at Lenox Hill last year before Drs. Worth and Mussalli from Village Obstetrics moved to Mount Sinai, we had trepidation as to whether the hospital staff would be supportive of our doctors and our philosophy of letting labor, even induced labor, take its course and whether they would give us the time my wife needed to have our baby. We could not have been happier with the hospital staff’s response and cooperation and were thrilled that our caregivers gave my wife the chance to labor and to have an easy and rapid delivery. My wife’s nurses were stupendous and patient, attending to all of her needs. She was induced at about 2 A.M., the nurses and Dr. Worth worked close once she was moved to the delivery room shortly after 7 A.M to work towards delivery. Labor reached its climax at about 5:00 when Dr. Worth decided to break her water. Many doctors would have done so hours earlier when she was less dilated. Our friends who have had their water broken earlier in their labors have experienced difficult deliveries. Because the hospital allowed her labor to take its course, my wife delivered an hour later after only pushing five times!!!!
We wanted to thank all of our caregivers for a wonderful experience.
