Village Maternity is a midwife centered concierge practice. It shares the space with Noble Fertility located at 36th Street and Lexington Avenue, conveniently near Grand Central Station. Our office hours were structured during evenings and weekends to accommodate all busy New Yorkers. Village Maternity provides prenatal care and well woman gynecology visits primarily by midwives but with active collaboration Ob/Gyn doctors, including Medical Director of Village Maternity Dr. Bernadith Russell and guided by evidenced based protocols developed by Drs. George Mussalli and Jaqueline Worth in their current Village Obstetrics practice.
The mission is to provide joyful and outstanding care to women by staff that are easy to access while incorporating innovative technology and best clinical practices to optimize the patient experience. The obstetrical patients will be delivered at Metropolitan Hospital by midwife staff. In the event that none of us are available, the Metropolitan attending on duty is available to the midwives for any necessary care. Dr. Mussalli and Dr. Worth in conjunction with Dr. Kaminsky (OB/GYN Director at Metropolitan) has developed specific inpatient protocols for Village Maternity patients. These protocols incorporate ACOG/SMFM endorsed best practices aimed at the safe prevention or unnecessary cesarean section. We also look forward to wireless fetal monitoring and nitrous oxide adjuncts to the pain management protocol. See the website for additional info (www.village-maternity.com).
