The owners of Northeast Doulas, Randy, Debbie and Lauren had the honor of being dinner guests of Dr. Jaqueline Worth and Dr. George Mussalli of Village Obstetrics last night.
Let me start by saying, the food was great and the company… EVEN BETTER! You know obstetricians are cool when they want to eat dinner with doulas! I’m just sayin’….
The philosophy of this dynamic duo says it all! If it came up once, it came up 10 times, these docs recognize that women shouldn’t have to choose between a safe delivery and a beautiful experience. Hallelujah!
When these docs talk about their statistics, it is clear that their patients have been heard!
In 2011 their c-section rate was a remarkable 8%!!! That means that 92% of their patients had successful vaginal deliveries! Now, check this out, they had a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) SUCCESS RATE in 2011of … 91%!!!!!
Dr. Worth and Dr. Mussalli call their approach to obstetrics “minimally invasive obstetrics” and have trademarked the term MIO to represent their philosophy. Their statistics certainly support this approach! Kudos to these docs!
It is with great pleasure that Northeast Doulas introduces you to our new friends at Village Obstetrics!
