Carol J. Grabowski, MD, Ob/Gyn, passionately endorses the "Heart of a Mother" book, and gifts an autographed copy to each new mother of babies she delivers at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center.

Dr. Grabowski is a board-certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist performs minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and was the first surgeon to use the DaVinci robot at LBMMC to perform a robot assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy. She still likes delivering babies and caring for women of all ages. She specializes in Menopausal Medicine and she is a member of the North American Menopause Society.

She has other interests which grow from her need to help others to know their bodies and maintain good health. She lectures to the public on women’s health topics such as Health Maintenance, Pap Tests and HPV, Osteoporosis, Menopause and Menopause Survival Skills for Women and Men.

Carol belongs to The Founders District Speakers Bureau and is available to speak by appointment. The feedback from her lectures always includes comments on how entertaining she is and how she makes it easy to understand difficult subjects.

Recently Dr. Grabowski has branched out and written some short stories about her life in a family of ten children and her experiences as an Obstetrician which were published in a book of collected works, the Heart of a Mother, and Heart of the Holidays, compiled by Sheryl Roush. Copies are available in her office, and at the Gift Shop at the Hospital.
