Does anyone have a recommendaton for a chiropractor, preferably one that does the Webster technique? Baby is still breech and I need her to turn soon!

i don't, but you are still pretty early. you've been doing the spinningbabies.com stuff, right?
post #1965 of 2107
What area are you near? I know people in Nassau and Suffolk that do Webster. You still have lots of time for the baby to turn on its own.

Yep, with no change. Midwife suggested a visit to the chiropractor.

I'm in eastern Suffolk, but I'm willing to travel for a good chiropractor!

find their phone number to locate them, so maybe they
are not there any more?

Don't have phone number of co-op in Malverne, but the name is light foods. Hope you can find it that way. I know it was open about 6 months ago.

Religious Exemption

Hello all -

I am preparing to enroll my daughter in kindergarten for the 2010 school year and I will be filing a religious exemption for the immunizations. I have heard that it is very difficult to get a religious exemption in NY and I even watched the video of that couple being grilled by the school lawyer who was to trying to find out if their religious beliefs where sincere and I'm a bit worried. Also, my daughter was vaccinated up until two but she will not be receiving any more vaccines.

My question is, has anyone had any luck filing a religious exemption on Long Island?

Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated!
post #1974 of 2107
well, i submitted an exemption about a week ago, and am awaiting my written response. The best advice i got was to contact gary Krasner. He will help- he's great. If you run a search here for his name, it will come up with his contact info. I basically had to write a 3 page narrative about our faith and beliefs and why vaccines are against those beliefs. if took a long time... good for you for starting early!!!
good luck, let me know if you have any more Q's.
post #1975 of 2107
We had no problem with our exemption, but then again my son attends a school for autistic and developmentally disabled children, so they are no strangers to religious exemptions . Honestly, it really depends on the school, since the decision is left up to the discretion of the principal; the same request could be approved by one principal but denied by another. So, I'll just echo pp and say "Call Krasner!" He was an immense help!
post #1976 of 2107
Thank you ladies! I will contact Gary Krasner ASAP!

Mommymoose - good luck getting your exemption! Please let me know how it goes.

Just google "Light Foods Co-op" and it'll show up. They're still running, although they need more regular customers.

Fairly new here...

I am sort of new here, I signed up and then did not have much time to read or post, but here I am now, looking for other mommies in Nassau county. I am stay-at-home-mom of a beautiful 4 months old baby girl, and I am itching for company during the day. I looked up all types of groups to see if they meet in my area, to no avail.
My location is Hempstead, and I would love to have a friend to take our kids to the playground with, etc. I live on the border of Garden City, which has a few nice places and many sidewalks!
I would also appreciate any insights about groups that might meet around here!
Thank you!!!

Hi, The Waldorf School in Garden City has a wonderful Parent/child program that starts either this week or next. Good for your little one's age. Helen

primary care doc?

i moved to this area almost a year ago and i'm still getting settled in. finding it very difficult to find like-minded mamas around here! i have 2 questions:

1. does anyone belong to the holistic moms network? i was thinking of going to the meeting to meet other parents but you have to join and i didn't know if it was well-attended or not.

2. can anyone recommend a primary doc for me? i have a ped for my kids, but no doctor for me! we're on the north shore...syosset/plainview area.
