PlainviewWe are moving to Plainview in March and I was wondering if anyone knew a natural minded pediatrician? and ped dentist?
Also looking for mamas in the area for playdates? I have an almost 3 year old daughter and an 8 mo. old baby boy.
Are there any playgroups you guys are involved in? would love to meet like minded people.
Jeanette BreenHey LI mamas! Sadly, I'm no mama or mama-to-be yet (but I do live on LI -- Port Washington, great place to be!) but I really hope to be soon. When I discussed it with my *forever* gyn (I've been seeing him since I was a teenager!) he informed me "he only does C-sections"... great. Anyhow, I decided home birth is the way I definitely want to go and I got about a million recs for Jeanette Breen who operates closest to me. I talked to her on the phone and loved her, and I have an appointment in about 2 weeks. When I mentioned my choice to my gyn, he told me not to use her because she's no good and has "bad outcomes." ?!?! Obviously, his stock isn't high with me right now and I'm not going to let it put me off meeting with Jeanette, but I didn't feel like I should just totally disregard such disturbing input. Does anyone know anything that lends credence to this claim, or is this guy just an all around idiot?
I don't know Jeanette, I don't know what her statistics are BUT I know several people who have home birthed with her and had very positive "outcomes" with her. I have only heard positive things about her since I have been aware of her which is about 6 years.
Ask her what her outcomes are.
You are smart, you are doing your homework early.
Keep researching and listen to your intuition.

LankyLizards and nolajane - happy moving, hope it wil be easy transition for you.we are having babywearing meetings and playgroups in Lindenhurst.Let me know if you want to stop by. I have 4 kids, two older girls are in school, i stay home with two boys 2 1/2 year old and 10 month old, always happy to have a playdate.
ThanksThanks so much Aneta, Jugs, and Mamapits! You all confirmed everything I've already heard and have been feeling... I'm really excited to meet Jeanette and my intuition tells me things are going to work out beautifully with her. I will, however, definitely inquire about her outcomes and statistics, and hopefully the numbers will back up her already stellar rep.
ped. dropped insurance, looking for another local dr.we loved our well qualified pediatricians of six years but they dropped our insurance plan. We loved that they'd always recommend that we stay home and observed our child's fevers instead of having us run in for antibiotics, they helped us believe in our child's natural immune system...
now we are looking for a new pediatrician. we are willing to travel on long island (nassau and suffolk would be best). there was a dr. in brooklyn that we heard was great, but i forgot his name... we're open to vaccinating-believing doctors to the non-vaccinating supporting drs. would love to hear some names and experiences. thanks.

GreenT~there is a great doc in Huntington, I'll ask my brother his name as I can't think of it right now. Dr. Larry Palevsky is also wonderful! He works with Alan Sherr, DO at the Northport Health & Wellness Center. I love him, but when I took Erin to him as an infant, he didn't accept insurance and it was a bit pricey. I'll find out for you
ETA: ok, his name is Dr Kerfus, I believe his first name is Lee. HTH!
BoobsOfSteel- welcome to LI! hope you will find a great community to settle in....Also we live in Lindenhurst, south shore, but we hike to Huntington to see our ped dr.Nina Tomei - she is really great.
Good luck to you and hope to meet one day.We are very open to playdates
Hi mamas! it has been a while since I posted and after our visit with a new ped in Port Jeff yesterday, I am thinking it must be worth the hike over to Huntington to see the ped you all recommended over there. The guy we saw yesterday said things like "after one year there is little benefit to breastfeeding except for comfort for baby and mother." I am horrified that he may be discouraging other nursing moms with the same kind of misinformation. Has anyone had similar experiences? is this common on LI?

yogacher- so happy to see prenatal yoga teacher on LI !!!! yey! i loved taking prenatal yoga classes back in the city, it was truly great experience .Unfortunately after we moved to LI it was pretty much impassible to find anybody who had a prenatal yoga class, there was always not enough moms to attend , so i spent my next three pregnancies doing prego yoga at home alone. I would say defiantly leave your info with the midwifes and doulas, they will spread a word for you.There is babywearing group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LIBaby...g/messages?o=1 and natural mothering forum http://groups.yahoo.com/group/naturalmotheringforum/ on yahoo groups for moms from LI, post it there.I will tell any pregnant mama about it. If i ever get pregnant again, i will be knocking on your door as well .
