I gave birth to my beautiful son Emmett Cutter on January 31st at St. Vincent’s hospital in Manhattan. I had the great fortune to have both Dr. Worth and Dr. Mussalli as my doctors. I went to St. Vincent’s that day for my routine sonogram and fetal heart monitoring. While lying on a hospital bed, the nurse listening to the fetal heart beating away, my water broke! I was admitted to Labor and Delivery and thus began a very positive, smooth ending to my first pregnancy.
I came to Dr, Worth about halfway through this pregnancy because I was unhappy with my original OB/GYN. The office was an impersonal one and I never felt comfortable with my doctor. When I decided to change I thought perhaps I should go with a mid-wife for a more personal experience. I called a friend who was a doula and she immediately recommended Dr. Worth. I e-mailed Dr. Worth hoping she would get back to me within the week but she e-mailed back almost immediately saying she would love to meet with me! From that moment on I have felt in the best of hands.
Dr. Worth and Dr. Mussalli, despite having a very busy practice, always had time to sit and answer any and all of my questions. They both clearly love what they do and are very good at it. With Village Obstetrics I felt I was getting the best of both worlds; the personal care of a mid- wife and the security of a doctor and hospital. I also have nothing but good things to say about the nurses and doctors at St. Vincent’s who took equally excellent care of me, my husband and my baby.
Throughout labor & delivery I never felt rushed or pushed into a decision. They always gave me my options and let me decide for myself. The result is that i feel I had exactly the birth I was meant to have. Their competence and warmth helped make the birth of my first child the amazing blessed experience I’d hoped it would be.
