Two CBS Midwifery clients gave birth during the big snowstorm – 7 lb. 5 oz “Graham” came into the world just after midnight, and 8 lb. 5 oz “Valentina” arrived about 18 hours later.
Barbara got to watch through the night as the storm gathered force and the snow flew. Later the streets emptied and the quiet descended over NYC – it was a little eerie coming home Saturday evening. When the Starbucks are closed in this town, you know something big is going on.
Congratulations to both mommies and daddies!

I had a wonderful week at a chateau in the countryside near Lautrec (9/18-23) with 9 other friends of Catherine Carr, to celebrate her birthday. Catherine & I met in nursing school, then became midwives & dear friends.
Mornings at the Chateau D’Aragon began with a trip into the village for fresh croissants & pain aux raisins or citron. Then over our coffee or tea & pastries we’d decide who was going where with whom. I saw some of Toulouse, Castres, Carcassone, & Albi, & hiked “The Crests” tour around Lautrec. Each evening we had a fabulous dinner cooked by Cousin John, one of the party who’s a professional chef from San Francisco.
The actual birthday celebration featured a chocolate mousse cake from the local patisserie & the surprise announcement to Catherine that we had established a scholarship in her name through the American College of Nurse Midwives.
Many thanks to Nicole for taking good care of all our clients while I was having such a great time!
