Dr. Worth and Dr. Mussalli,
Tandem: a group of two people working together.
The story of the two of you riding a tandem bicycle made me think of how it’s representative of how you approach your work. So many obstetricians view themselves as the ones in charge, the experts, as the only voices in the room. But you both have always wanted to hear my voice, encouraged us to listen to my body, and welcomed the presence of doulas. We were always a team – working in tandem. I am confident that with any other practice, with any other team, I would not have had 3 successful VBACs and I owe that all to you, your patience, your confidence, your expertise. Thank you for everything. We are eternally grateful.
To Lourdes, and Leanne,
I’ll miss seeing your welcoming smiles at every visit during every one of my pregnancies. Thank you for taking care of me and my babies. We were so lucky to be under your care.
I realize that not everyone gets this emotional about their obstetricians, and it is a testament to the way you have chosen to practice. It’s the reason I couldn’t imagine finding a new doctor after we moved. It was never a question that I would come back to you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
All our love,
M & J M. and our 4 baby girls (including 3 VOB babies)
