Meet & Greet First

Your care with us starts with a no-charge meet and greet appointment.

This is a conversation all about you and all about us. If we are going to do something as important and life-changing as delivering your baby, you and your partner must have the utmost confidence in and comfort with us. We develop our bond with you by meeting you before your care starts. We can always fit you in within a week.


Comprehensive Initial Exam

At your first medical visit we take an extremely detailed history.

  • We ask about your hopes and dreams and fears.
  • We study your physical health and any current or potential complications.
  • We review all outside records in detail.

Open Door Policy

If you need us, we will always make time for you on the schedule.

We reserve time for emergency visits every day. Regular visits are monthly, in the beginning, accelerating to every two weeks in the middle, and weekly at the end. We see you a lot! We know everything about you.


Birth Coaching

Our connections with pediatricians, childbirth educators, yoga teachers, doulas, and lactation experts help guide you through the topics you need.

  • Who is your pediatrician? Will you want an epidural? How will you know when labor starts? Do you want or need to be induced? Do you hope your birth is vaginal or cesarean? We have lots to say on all these topics and more.

Doctor with You in Labor

When you are admitted to Mount Sinai, either Dr. Worth or Dr. Mussalli will meet you shortly after you arrive.

It is our approach to stay with you the whole time you are there. You will be delivered by either Drs. Worth or Mussalli for sure.

Between Birth Coaching & Frequent Visits, We Get Great Results.

Our cesarean rate is low, and VBAC success high. Nearly all our patients do skin-to-skin immediately. We barely ever use episiotomies. Almost all our patients can initiate breastfeeding in the first 30 minutes.
