Is St. Louis a decently supportive place for things like breastfeeding, babywearing, ECing & homebirthing? We are considering moving there and I would like to know.

Do you know where in the St. Louis area you'd be moving to? Are you looking for city living, inner ring suburbs, or outer suburbs? Is it for a specific sort of job?
We live in the Skinker - DeBaliviere neighborhood, and like it a lot. It's close to metro stations, Forest Park, and the Loop (like, you could walk to any of these fairly easily) but because of the way the roads are set up it's not on the way to any of them, so there's not much traffic. It's generally quiet and friendly here, very diverse, lots of community activities, nice parks... we are in the city limits, so the schools apparently aren't great - we homeschool, so it wasn't an issue.
Wash U is also a short walk away. I go to school there, but they also offer lots of stuff that's open to everyone - lectures, movies, arts events, museums, etc. It's also a gorgeous campus...
