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.

Climate March in Manhattan

On September 22, 2014

On Sunday, September 21, Barbara joined her granddaughter Kendall at the Climate March in Manhattan. Kendall came up with 18 of her friends from the University of Virginia, where she is a freshman, to make their voices heard in this cause.

It was a full house at Barbara’s apartment, with sleeping bags on the floors & lines for the bathroom, but we all had a great time.

3,400 Births for CBS Midwifery!

On August 23, 2014

On August 18th, CBS Midwifery delivered our 3,400th baby, Jackson Scott Harrison. Jackson’s parents, Scott and Viktoria Harrison, founded the NYC-based nonprofit charity: water, which raises awareness and money to help people living in developing nations get access to clean drinking water. Currently, 800 million people worldwide don’t have clean water to drink, and in the last 7 years, charity: water has raised more than $140 million, and funded over 11,000 water projects that will help 4.4 million people. To celebrate Jackson’s birth, Scott and Viktoria setup a fundraising campaign where friends and family could donate in his honor. To date, Jackson has raised more than $171,000 which will help 4,800 people get clean water.

Notes from Nicole

On August 16, 2014

I had a wonderful time at the Newport Folk Festival this summer with my husband, Josh, daughter, Eleanor, and friends. We rented a house near all the action and filled it with 6 adults and 5 kids. We enjoyed listening to many talented musicians and teaching Eleanor how to dance. Favorites included Nickel Creek, Tau and the Get Down Stay Down and Jeff Tweedy.  And boy does Newport have great fish and chips!

We also spent several days in Fire Island. It was mayhem and madness with my mom, sisters, sister-in-law, brother-in-laws, cousins, aunts, uncles, and nephews. Eleanor loved playing in the sand and putting her toes in the water.  She especially loved being entertained by her big cousins, JP, Harry, John and Hunter.  They taught her all about catching frogs, flying kites and building sand castles. We ended each day watching the beautiful sunset, sipping a cocktail, and cooking a huge barbecue.

In other news, I am now performing intrauterine insemination (IUI) in the office for single mothers by choice and same-sex couples.

My week in Ocean Grove, New Jersey

On July 20, 2014

My week in Ocean Grove, New Jersey (7/12 – 7/19) was great – truly relaxing and fun. All the family was there: my older daughter Amy, her husband Jim, and their children Kendall and Kieran; my younger daughter Jen, her fiance Tim, and Jen’s daughter Clementine; and my sister Daphne. We rented the same comfortable house we’ve had for 3 years now, a block from the beach and a short walk to Asbury Park. Our weather featured a few thunderstorms, but nothing to spoil our days of boogie boarding at the beach (not me – the water temperature was in the 60’s, but that didn’t stop the kids, Jen, and Tim), miniature golf, and just hanging out. We gorged on Korean tacos from MoGo on the Asbury Park boardwalk, ice cream at Days, and the Bradley Beach lobster fest (on Sunday).

I hope you are all having as wonderful as summer!
