DH is interviewing for a job in the Tri-Cities. Rumor has it that this isn’t a super crunchy area of the state. But I’ve been doing some investigating and have learned that there’s a midwifery practice there, the largest farmer’s market in the area in Pasco, and a decent selection of natural foods store.
First, I’m a breastfeeding, SAH, AP mom due to have another baby in the spring. Is there an active LLL group? Are there opportunities to meet and mingle with other AP moms?
Also, could somebody recommend a good homebirth (or FSBC) midwife in the area? It looks like there’s a good selection, and I’ll definitely interview everyone if we end up moving there. But it would be nice to hear from anyone with personal experience!
Do you know of any vax-friendly family docs or peds in the area? What about a naturopath? We’re selective vaxers and will be seeing one of the latter at least annually in order to comply with the state’s new vax law.
Which of the tri-cities is the most preferable for living? Which areas are best? (We'll be renting at first, then buying). What else can you tell me about the area? What do you like/not like about living there?
Thanks in advance.
