Project Description

Barbara Fleck

Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I moved to the Capital District in 1987, and it has been home ever since. My family and practice have flourished in this area.

I enjoy working with women in every interlude of their lives in providing obstetric and gynecologic care.   Listening to women, educating, supporting and empowering their journeys are my commitments to providing care. I believe in holistic health for myself as well as my clients, which keeps me learning about integrative health options incorporating nutrition, exercise, herbal, homeopathy and body work. I offer all these options as well as traditional medical care.

While being the granddaughter of a midwife has this work in my blood, sharing this journey with each woman creates the passion in my heart. It has been my privilege to provide midwifery care over the past 20 years in the Capital District.
