HEALTH 12/12/2018 08:00 am ET When the Mt. Sinai West Birthing Center closes, mothers will lose a space that prioritized "natural" birth. By Catherine Pearson Julia was in the thick of active labor when she arrived in triage at Mt. Sinai West hospital on Manhattan’s Upper West Side last May — and right away, she wanted out. The room was cramped. Julia, who asked to use only her first name for privacy reasons, was hooked up to a monitor that allowed nurses to check the baby’s heart rate, but also meant she couldn’t move. She felt claustrophobic. As Julia dealt with contractions, her midwife was locked in her own battle, quietly negotiating with hospital staff to ensure her patient could move to the Birthing Center — a three-room unit that has, since 1996, been a destination for New York City women seeking low-intervention vaginal births. Julia chose Mt. Sinai West specifically for the Birthing Center and met the criteria women must to … [Read more...] about New York City Will Lose One Of Its Only Birth Centers.

For the Strickland family, summer vacation means reconnecting with nature. "The one thing I loved when we first got here is that they kicked off their shoes and ran to the grass," Amy Strickland said of her kids. "So it was like getting out of that concrete jungle and getting the nature element back in your life." Strickland and her kids Madison and Jackson, who are experienced campers, decided to try something new for Madison's fourteenth birthday: they went on an indulgent retreat in the shadow of an iconic skyline. They went glamping. Glamping, or glamorous camping, provides the comforts of a hotel in the middle of nature's beauty. Remarkably, one of the newest glamping sites looks out on some man-made wonders: the skyscrapers of Manhattan. "Each of the Journey tents either has two single beds or a full bed inside -- full electricity, lots of places to plug in your gadgets, phones," said Collective Retreats CEO Peter Mack. His hotel brand sets up temporary, eco-friendly … [Read more...] about Gone glamping: Luxury tents offer an indulgent retreat in the shadow of New York City
