CBS Midwifery is a private practice that has been owned and run by midwives since it was established in 1982. By 2015, midwives of the practice had helped birth over 3,500 babies. Today, Barbara Sellars and Nicole Marshall,  both of whom are certified by the American College of Nurse-Midwives, provide office services including gynecology and contraceptive care, preconception counseling, prenatal care, and postpartum care. Labor and birth takes place at Mount Sinai West, formerly Mount Sinai Roosevelt. Mount Sinai West offers an in-hospital natural birthing center as well as a Labor and Delivery Unit. In either setting, all your exams will be done by your midwife, and she will be with you for labor, birth, and the immediate postpartum period.

Barbara Sellars, CNM

In her 37 years of practice, Barbara Sellars, CNM, has helped birth over 2,000 babies. "I was a mother before I was a nurse or midwife, and my own experiences shaped my vision of what women's health care should be," comments Barbara, "I know first-hand what a difference information and a sense of control can make when you are having a baby. Each woman and her partner are different, and there is no "right way" to give birth. My goal is to help each couple find their way to a safe and satisfying birth experience."

Barbara graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with her BS in nursing in 1975, and received her master’s in midwifery from Yale University in 1979. She was employed as a certified nurse midwife at North Central Bronx Hospital from 1979-1982, and at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center from 1982-1985. She joined CBS Midwifery in 1985.

Nicole Marshall, CNM

Nicole Marshall, CNM, has a bachelor's degree from Fordham University and dual master's degrees in Midwifery and Women's Health from Columbia University. She began her career at Bronx Lebanon Hospital where she worked for many years attending births and caring for women of all ages. In 2011, Nicole decided to pursue an interest in global health and spent several months in Uganda where she taught sex education and delivered babies in a rural birthing center alongside traditional birth attendants. Nicole has also worked at Albert Einstein College of Medicine as a research clinician, investigating drugs to prevent the transmission of HIV, and at Ottenheimer Health, practicing holistic gynecology.

Nicole lives with her husband and daughter, Eleanor, who was born into the hands of Barbara at Mount Sinai West. She lives in Maplewood, New Jersey.
