THE NEW CBS MIDWIFERY


Unexpectedly Ex Officio

I’ve had a good six months since I stopped attending births and “sort of” retired. I’ve enjoyed seeing some of my old clients for annual exams, and some new clients for early pregnancy counseling, in my old office at 80 Maiden Lane. I had hoped to continue with this.

Dr. Ottenheimer, with whom I have shared office space for many years, has informed me that I will need to move out by the end of March. She will be joining Maiden Lane Medical, next door at 90 Maiden Lane. My last day to see patients in my old space is 3/22/19.

I still have my current license and malpractice insurance, so I can continue to do consultations for clients seeking early pregnancy advice and referrals, in the clients’ home or office. (See below). I can also renew prescriptions, send mammogram or sonogram referrals, and answer questions by email ([email protected]) or phone/text (917-686-5309).

I’m going to Oxford and Paris at the invitation of my daughter Jen in early April. More on future plans once I am back.

A New Season Is Upon Us!


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 referrals for sonograms and basic pregnancy labs. 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!
