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.

Wishing everyone a healthy and joyous 2017!

On January 3, 2017

By

December was a very happy month in our house. This year Christmas and Chanukah fell over the same week. Eleanor was in her glory–Santa AND 8 night of candles, singing and latkes. We were able to enjoy lots of family time thanks to all the babies who waited until after the holidays to enter the world.


Happy New Year!

On January 2, 2017

Here’s hoping you all enjoyed the holidays. Barbara flew to Tulsa to spend time with her father, sister, and nephew, all of whom were sick within 36 hours of her arrival. She had planned to drive to Bentonville, Arkansas, home of her older daughter, Amy, so she left a little earlier (and luckily, did not get the flu). Younger daughter Jen and her family joined the festivities, so Barbara got to see both her daughters and all 3 grandchildren for Christmas.
 

Barbara Re-connecting with 2 Friends

On October 13, 2016

Barbara recently had the pleasure of re-connecting with 2 of the friends from last September’s week in the southwest of France. Jim and Ron visited NYC from their home in Seattle, and their top priority was a real pastrami sandwich. They were satisfied by the humongous ones at Katz’s Deli, and appreciated the “ambiance.” Afterwards we had a very interesting tour of the Tenement Museum. Jim had always wanted to see Flatbush Avenue (Barbara: “So there’s Flatbush Avenue.” Jim: “Ok we can go now.”) and from there we toured some of Brooklyn and had chopped liver and matzo ball soup at Mile End. (“We can’t get this kind of food in Seattle!”) In appreciation of her tour guiding, Ron and Jim treated Barbara to an Italian feast at Scarpetta on their last night in town. They’ll be back next spring, and have already bought tickets to “Hello, Dolly!” with Bette Midler. Can’t wait!
