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!


Arizona

On October 17, 2018

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!

In honor of my grandson, Kieran, who is 19 years old today. And in honor of my granddaughters and my daughters and my patients and my friends and ALL women.


Birth Center Closing

On September 10, 2018

Mount Sinai has announced they will be closing the Birthing Center at Mt. Sinai West in January, 2019. Fewer choices for childbearing families! We mourn the loss of this option, which was the place of birth of so many CBS babies.

Barbara’s Vacation in Greece

On July 28, 2018

I spent a week on Crete with my sister Daphne & 2 of the grandkids, 18 year-old Kieran & his 15 year-old cousin Clementine. Then we flew to Athens for 3 days.


Barbara in old Chania town, Crete

The view from our villa near Kokkino Chorio. It was so dry there!

Barbara at the Parthenon – a dream come true!

Barbara in Florence, Italy

On May 5, 2018

A perfect week with friends in a little apartment in the Oltrarno; azure skies every day. Plenty of gelato, art, pasta, vino & a respite from politics/news. A renaissance!
