Hi mamas! So, I started a thread earlier this year b/c my family was considering moving to CT. Well, it's official - DH has a job in Collinsville starting in July, and we're going to be in the area the first week of June exploring and finding a place to live!

I'm researching lots of different info now. I think we have an idea of where we're going to look to live (Collinsville Farmington, etc. - really wanting a small town), but I was wondering if people have recs on doctors for dd and also VBAC info. DH and I are hoping to have a 2nd soon, but I'm nervous about finding good support there. Any other recs for connecting with moms on the area?

TIA!

Hi! I'm in central CT, so I don't have doc recs for you, but check out fnlct.org for a biiiiiig group of CT parents who fall on the AP side of things. I know there are a bunch of doulas and some VBAC mamas there who could point you in the right direction.

Hi! Canton Pediatrics is wonderful - they are so gentle and supportive. Not far from Collinsville at all, located on Rt. 44.

There is a number in today's classifieds for a rental in Collinsville. I would imagine you can access it at the Hartford Courant online. I was in town yesterday, and saw a sign on Center Street for rent. Didn't catch the number but it might be worth googling.

I think Collinsville is a neat little town. There is a great walk along the river that goes and goes, everytime I'm there I see tons of families.

Good luck with your move!
