THE NEW CBS MIDWIFERY


It’s just me now, Barbara Sellars, in solo practice once more. I’ve starting seeing clients in my old office space at 80 Maiden Lane, Suite 901, on the first and third Friday of the month from 1-5 pm. I remain fully licensed, certified, and insured for well-woman gynecology and early pregnancy care (up to 12 weeks), and can write prescriptions and make referrals. Please call my cell phone (917-686-5309) to book an appointment. When I say solo, I mean I’m the secretary, too! I can’t accept insurance or credit cards, but I will take checks or cash and give you a receipt on the spot ($150/half hour).

Please note: in February, office hours will be the afternoon of February 8th and February 22nd.


NEWLY PREGNANT? THINKING ABOUT IT? NEED INFO?

What tests are available these days?
When are they done?
What can they tell me?
Which caregiver and which birth environment are right for me?

IF YOU DON’T WANT TO DELAY THE ONSET OF PRENATAL CARE, BUT YOU NEED MORE TIME TO CHECK OUT YOUR OPTIONS, I CAN HELP

I no longer attend births, but I am fully certified and licensed to provide pregnancy care up to 12 weeks. I can answer your questions about genetic testing and make referrals, give you requisitions for sonograms, and do your basic pregnancy labs in my office. Based on your history and your birth preferences, I can help you find a caregiver and place of birth that’s right for you. You’ll have time to interview caregivers and tour facilities before committing. I will give you copies of all test results so your transition to your caregiver of choice is easy.

Call my cell phone (917-686-5309) to book an appointment.

Best Wishes to All for 2019!

On January 2, 2019

I hope you all had a wonderful and not-too-stressful holiday time with family, friends, and good food – I sure did! I loved getting all your holiday cards with family photos – it’s great to see the babies become big kids and the parents appear just a little less tired and a little less uncertain as the years go by. I gotta tell you, it is a wonderful thing not to be tired all the time, and I hope you live long enough to enjoy it, as I am now. It was totally worth it, as a parent and as a midwife, but my constant refrain for half a century (my older daughter is 50 for Pete’s sake!) was “someday.” Have faith – “someday” has come for me, so hang in there. Maybe you, too, will be able to buy a half-price ticket to a Broadway matinee at the TKTS booth, go to the gym, grab a bite for lunch, then take in the play; or spend a day poking around museums or galleries. Leisurely lunches with friends = not a fantasy. Stay healthy so you can!

Good genes help – see below in the right of the photo my 94-year-old Dad. He just hand-built an oak cradle for my niece’s baby, due any day. This is just some of the family in Tulsa; my daughter and granddaughter who live 2 hours away in Arkansas (kneeling on the floor below my dad) had brought me back from their house, where I spent a day with them and my grandson (not pictured). My younger daughter and her family were with other relatives in Colorado, but I got to see both my sisters and their kids and grandkids too.

Glad to be back in NYC for the New Year, and to keep in touch with clients whom I can help. Always available by text, phone (917-686-5309) or email ([email protected]). Stay in touch!

Barbara went out West to visit old friends in Arizona, and got to see the natural wonders of the Red Rocks of Sedona and the Grand Canyon. Pretty impressive!
