Christiana Care Hospital

Jessica Apel, D.O. completed her medical training at Midwestern University’s Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine after graduating from the State University of New Jersey–Rutgers College with a BA in Biology. She joined Christiana Care for residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology and graduated in 2012. Dr. Apel became Board Certified in January of 2015.

Dr. Apel is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). She loves practicing Obstetrics. Creating a safe environment with open communication during an emotional charged pregnancy is her goal. Her favorite patient visit is the 6-week post partum follow up. Snuggling newborns and listening to women discuss their transition after delivery into motherhood for the first, second, or fifth time is complex and rewarding. Dr. Apel loves being in the operating room with Dr. Smith. Over the years, both have cultivated their minimally invasion surgical techniques and compliment each other fluidly in the operating room. Dr. Apel is also passionate about fitness and self care for both herself and her patients. Some of her other areas of expertise and interests are:

Abnormal Pap Smears Management, Adolescent Gynecology, Alternative Pain Management During Labor, Breast Feeding Education and Support, Contraceptive Management, Endometrial Ablations, Endometriosis Management, Exercise in Pregnancy, Family Planning, Fertility, High Risk Pregnancy, IUD-Intrauterine Device, Laparoscopic and Minimally Invasive Surgery, Menopause, Menstrual Disorders, Nexplanon, Pelvic Prolapse, Pelvic Pain, Practice of Mindfulness, Vulvar Disorders, Complicated Vaginitis, Preconception Counseling, Pregnancy Loss, Preventative Medicine for Women’s Health, Urinary Incontinence

She and her husband George enjoy time together at their home in Kennett Square, PA. Their daughter, Ella Mae, started Fourth Grade this year and loves softball. Georgie began second grade and is busy with football and baseball. Jess enjoys exercise and believes physical movement is critical in maintaining young and vitality. As a previous collegiate athlete: weight lifting, cycling, yoga, her Peloton including App, and running help keep a balance of mental and physical health during her chaotic and demanding schedule. Her newest interest is in both functional medicine and exploring alternative pathways for healthier living. She also enjoys cooking in her kitchen by the fireplace; skiing; watching documentaries; being outside; helping to farm her land with her husband; playing with their Newfoundland puppy, Hawthorne; and sitting on her porch with a hot cup of coffee.

Dr. Apel truly believes in creating a strong referral network of the best experts who provide care for women in our community. Women Living Well has been a dream of hers since medical school. She envisions a practice where women are healthy both in mind and body.

She is just the best! I always feel like I'm in great hands with Dr Apel, and I really appreciate her encouraging words while I was being operated on. She truly helped me have the best birthing experience out of the 3 I've had.

Dr. Apel is always friendly, listens to my concerns, and gives great feedback/medical advice. At my last visit, she listened to my concerns and subsequently discovered that I was already dilated 5cm at under 33 weeks gestation. I truly believe she helped to save my baby's life by sending me to triage for further care. She then delivered my baby a few days later and she was amazing. Definitely very pleased with Women Living Well as a practice and plan on staying here for my gynecological care.
