Community Midwifery Care
Plaza Wellness, 36 Plaza Street East, Suite 1A
Community Midwifery Care is the full-scope midwifery practice of Gina Eichenbaum-Pikser, CNM, and Abby Brown, CNM, dedicated to personal, unrushed, evidence-based care.
Gina and Abby provide prenatal care in their practice office at Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, and one coming soon to Manhattan. They attend births at Mount Sinai West, at 1000 Tenth Avenue in Manhattan, in both the natural Birthing Center and on the Labor and Delivery Floor, allowing the best combination of safety and choice in the birthing process.
Gina Eichenbaum-Pikser, CNM
Gina Eichenbaum-Pikser has been a certified nurse-midwife since graduating from the Columbia University School of Nursing in 2008. Her decision to become a midwife came from a deep-seated belief in social justice, feminism, and the power of human connection as well as a profound awe of the human body. As an undergraduate student at Wesleyan University, she studied history, philosophy and literature in the College of Letters and spent a semester in Spain as well as a summer in Guatemala, where she worked with indigenous midwives. In 2012 Gina opened Community Gyn Care, focusing on fertility and holistic gynecologic care. For many years she provided prenatal care and attended births in the public health setting and is thrilled to begin offering those services with Community Midwifery Care. A life-long New Yorker, she currently lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
Abby Brown, CNM
Abby Brown has been a certified nurse midwife since 2007. She received her midwifery degree from Yale University School of Nursing and her undergraduate degree in psychology from Smith College. She decided to become a midwife after seeing a woman give birth for the first time and found it to be the craziest best thing she’d ever seen. She strongly believes that all people deserve quality, informed, respectful healthcare. She has been a full-scope midwife at Bellevue Hospital Center since 2007 and joined Gina at Community Gyn Care in 2014, after returning from a few years living in London. She lives in Manhattan with her husband and their two children.
