Dear Dr. Worth and Dr. Mussalli,
It is hard to capture in words how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to bring a new life into the world with both of you by my side. I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive experience and beautiful birth. It is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
After my first birth, I was deeply disappointed by my care, and knew that I wanted a different kind of experience. I wanted to feel supported and empowered. So I started to look for a new doctor. After I met both of you, I immediately knew you were “the ones.” You were caring yet honest. You listened. You were obviously dedicated to your work. And everyone in your office was so warm and welcoming.
My dream was to have a VBAC and you supported me every step of the way. I felt so confident in your skilled hands. But also… I felt treated as a person who mattered. I felt heard. In my experience, this can sometimes be rare in medicine. And even in life, really.
Thank you for helping me make my birth dreams come true. Thank you for keeping me and my baby safe. And, mostly, thank you for caring and for being there. You are great role models for all of us (especially in this crazy time).
I will miss seeing you, and I wish you all the best. If my husband and I ever decide to have another baby, you will be the first ones we will call!
