Dear Dr. Worth and Dr. Mussalli,
I came to you determined that all I wanted and needed was to VBAC my second child and although I leave your care having not achieved my VBAC, I now understand that what I actually wanted and needed was my dignity and humanity returned to me.
Childbirth is our first beginning experience as mothers and the delivery of my first child left me feeling angry and helpless and inadequate. My second labor an delivery of Aaron with VOB was exactly the healing experience that I needed.
Dr. Mussalli and Dr. Worth guided me through tough labor with compassion and respect. I can’t forget Dr. Mussalli’s words on our way to the OR- “Your body did everything it could, but sometimes you need a little bit of luck and we just aren’t getting it right now.” With that, we all decided that a repeat C-section was the right choice. The calm, thoughtful and respectful manner with which this team treated me is incomparable.
Additionally, the impeccable work Dr. Worth and Dr. Mussalli do as surgeons was obvious through my incredibly easy recovery.
I can’t thank you enough for what you gave back to me.
The H. Family
