Hi! I run a group for the south suburbs a bit closer to the city that is very natural family/gentle parenting minded but i will be dissolving the group next month because we are moving. Having the group though has lead me to other group in the area i can recommend.
Like said above, i think you should check out:
Orland Park LLL (3rd Tuesday of each month at 10:30AM) AP Chicago South
(2nd Tuesday of each month)
@ Cutie Poops and Bottoms 14910 South La Grange Road (in Trader Joes mall)
I have been to both meetings and know a few moms in each, i know you will find mothers with similar beliefs and feel very comfortable.
Holistic Moms Network Chicago SW Suburbs Chapter
- they meet in Homer Glen, for some reason they don't have their events up in that calendar so you could also check out their Facebook
I know they are still a bit of a drive for you but maybe by attending the meetings you will find ladies that are in the same boat you are and travel for like minded moms...which can maybe lead to knowing more in your area and future collaboration for your own group closer to your neighborhood!
