Hi Dr. Worth and Dr. Mussalli,
I meant to send this note to your blog a long time ago… I guess you can say that’s how long it took this new mom to “settle in”. Hope you both are doing well. Will bring baby LoElle to visit one day soon.
Preparing for baby was a bit scary especially as my due date neared. However, from the first day I met Dr. Worth and Dr. Mussalli in Spring 2013, I was confident that this was the team I wanted to deliver my baby. I may have been the most “shy” patient ever… hardly ever had a question, yet I was given all the attention and care any new mom deserved.
Dr. Worth and Dr. Mussalli really journey with you and this makes your pregnancy experience much more comfortable. I have learnt that you can never be 100% prepared. This I know from looking back at my birth plan which never made it out of my bag and yet, I would have done nothing different at the hospital.
Village Obstetrics has the warmest medical team, most awesome staff and best pregnancy care and advice a patient could ever need. No question is too small, no detail is not worth going over. The chit chat experience was an eye-opener and much appreciated. It set the pace for my husband and I to do a birthing class which turned out to be very useful when those labor pains started.
On November 10, 2013, three weeks early at about 2am… I remember having intense back pain. The pain was manageable and after confirming my contractions had begun with first Dr. Mussalli and then updating Dr. Worth with my progress, I remained comfy at home until what I call the (11th hour – almost literally). After about 2 hours I held my daughter in my arms… It’s a girl! Dr. Mussalli was able to take control of my most frightful moments (as I had a natural birth) and keep me focused to deliver my baby with minimal tearing in three pushes. I was too elated to be impressed with myself… I will forever be grateful and was very impressed by my Village OBs team.
Now LoElle is 3 months!!! Still can’t believe it. Thank you all! I will return when it’s time to expand the family.
