Kat Palmer always knew she was a Barwin baby.
It was a matter of pride in her family that Dr. Norman Barwin, Ottawa’s renowned fertility doctor and baby whisperer, had helped her parents conceive after years of trying.
As members of Ottawa’s tight-knit Jewish community, they sometimes ran into the doctor at events while she was growing up.
“My parents were so grateful to this man. My dad would bring me over and say: ‘We are so thankful to him because he gave us you.’”
Those words hang in the air as Palmer says them today. They have new meaning now.
