Yes, I forgot to add it's a religious exemption.
I didn't know there was a spot for the doctor to sign as well.
I will bring it with me when he gets his physical. Our doc is very supportive of our decision.
I don't know if Kelli Johnson travels that far but check her out too. She does homebirth and is very respected in the community.
You can go to the Florida Friends of Midwives website to get her contact info.
Ok ladies, this is the first time I have had to deal with daycare and vaccines.
I plan to get my exemption tomorrow since my son will be enrolled in daycare in the next few weeks.

I love what you wrote Lisa.
I guess my thoughts with "formal" training includes an apprenticeship. So even though I live in a state that has licensed midwives, I still feel that by following their steps to get my license (which includes school), I will still become a more traditional midwife if that makes sense.
I see your point but in some states, it is illegal to attend births as a midwife without formal training. I live in Florida and you must attend a 3 year school and complete an apprenticeship. Then once you are licensed, you must follow state laws to stay legal.
