I know this is a little late. I am an AP in Birmingham and honestly I feel really alone sometimes. Don't get me wrong there are a decent amount of babywearers and breastfeeders that can be found if you look in the right places. However, as a whole you will not find much support relating to AP from the general by-stander. Like at my work- I don't know a single person that is into AP. You have to seek out like minded folks. Birmingham is very politically and socially conservative. In general there are lots of cool things to do here--lots of greats parks, hiking etc. The schools are great based on conventional standards. With all that being said, Birmingham is the most progressive city of Alabama. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any specific questions.
