I think the answer also depends on which state you live in as the vax laws are different from state to state. In MN we can state we have philosophical issues against vax and while it is not common, it is available. We lucked out so far as the PED we saw in the hospital before we were discharged has ended up being pretty cool about non-vax. She was at first pretty upset, but after our first couple of visits, she doesn't even mention them anymore. She also was very up front about NOT doing any vax in the hospital on a newborn, which was such a relief. We did continue with the well visits to establish our DD as a patient in case we needed an MD.
Finding an ND is an interesting option and one I might look into. Our first lines of defense are: natural foods, essential oils, chinese medicine/acupuncture, homeopathy. So far DD has had only minor colds, once with a fever of 103. She turned three last week.
We plan on taking our son to this same OB as we feel the path has already been paved and she mentioned she would be OK with taking him on as her patient already knowing we don't vax.
One book that I found very interesting in this vax conversation is "How to Raise a Vaccine-Free Child." I liked it because it cited a lot of information plus it gave strategies for each childhood disease in case baby does get sick.
I also am on Facebook and friend NVIC or National Vaccine Information Center, which has a ton of information including links to youtube videos/documentaries. I watched Shots in the Dark yesterday. I also watched The Greater Good, which was on tv recently. I have to say though that the stories in these documentaries are heart-breaking and you're like me, you need to be able to walk away or turn it off when it becomes too disturbing. At least Shots in the Dark focused more on older people and toddlers/children. In The Greater Good you'll meet a mom who lost her infant child who stopped breathing after a standard vax shot I think around four months. I wasn't warned and when I saw that I sobbed for hours. So - researching is a very challenging effort esp while pg.
It's nice to know that Oregon has some flexibility. I have an aquaintance who is moving there. She just has refused to take her children in to see any doctor/well baby/well child visits as she doesn't want to be forced or bullied into vax.
The issue with vaccines goes beyond just autism as well. There is a huge number of health challenges that children are facing now that didn't 40 years ago. while the autism rate is now reported at 1 in 100, the rate at which children are developing lifelong diseases and disabilities is cited as 1 in 6 and includes asthma, allergies, auto-immune diseases such as arthritis, rhematoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, ADD, ADHD, etc.
Good luck in your research and hope you find your answer that works best for you and your family.
