Hi I'm trying to find a new pediatrician in Alabama who is crunchy mom friendly. Any suggestions would be helpful. I'm located in Shelby County and willing to travel up to 50 miles

Hi mama! I live in Trussville and we are looking for a non-vac friendly pediatrician as well. Just how crunchy are you looking for? Our current ped is at Pediatrics East in Trussville. She has been very accommodating as far as delaying/spacing out vax, breastfeeding, and only rarely prescribes antibiotics. She is not ok with completely avoiding vax, which is why I am looking to change. I can give you her name if you are interested! Just let me know!

Ok, so apparently, I don't have the ability to send PM's yet. Our pediatrician is Garland Youngblood and she is at Pediatrics East in Trussville. 205-836-8691 is their office number. She has been very easy to work with and she knows that I don't like to give meds unless it is absolutely necessary. She supported me in breastfeeding and has worked with us on a delayed/alternate vax schedule. She also supports my vegatarian lifestyle and doesn't try to make me feel like I'm a weirdo for not eating meat. I hope this helps! :)

Hi again! I found a non-vax friendly pediatrician in downtown **********. We are switching to her since we have decided not to vax any more. Her name is Dr. Denton and she is with Children's Medical Group on 7th Avenue South. Their number is: 205-251-4141. We have our first appointment with her next week (check up) so that we can be established as a patient. I will let you know how it goes if you are still looking for somewhere to change to. :laugh:
