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.

Trip to Dublin & Killarney

On May 19, 2017

Barbara is back from a brief but beautiful trip to Dublin & Killarney. She had 2 days on her own in Dublin, where she got to see the Book of Kells & explore the town on foot. The train ride south was a chance to see the flowers of springtime against the green countryside. In Killarney she joined her younger daughter, Jen, & Jen’s husband Tim, on Mother’s Day. We drove up to see the castle that Tim & his brother Frank are restoring, then to Kenmare House where everyone was staying. “Everyone” included Frank’s wife Angelique & most of their 14 kids, Tim & Frank’s 92 year old mother, & several nieces. The next day it poured rain, but the last day in Killarney was a fine one. Jen & Tim convinced Barbara to bike around Killarney National Park & the lakes, & she only fell off twice!

Happy Spring!

On April 16, 2017

Happy Spring! Hat designed and made by my granddaughter, Clementine Hecker, elicited many compliments and smiles at the Easter Parade. Clementine’s mother, my daughter Jennifer, and her husband Tim have invited me to join them in Ireland in May. I’ll be leaving on the night of the 11th for Dublin, and meeting them in Killarney on the 14th – back on the 17th. Welcoming any suggestions for my short time in the Emerald Isle! Barbara
 

Nicole’s Vacation in Sedona

On February 25, 2017

Nicole just came back from a lovely vacation in Sedona, Arizona with her family and in-laws. She enjoyed the beautiful weather, spectacular vistas, and lots of hiking in the Red Rocks. She even got to visit the Grand Canyon—-incredible!


Quick trip to Paris

On January 17, 2017

Barbara snuck away for 4 nights in Paris with her sister Daphne to see this exhibition of Impressionist art at the Fondation Louis Vuitton. Great little apartment near Notre Dame; fabulous food; & the clouds & occasional rain did not spoil anything. Back on MLK Day – thanks to Nicole for covering!
