I am six months pregnant and will not be vaccinating. I am also on Medicaid so will it be impossible for me to find a doctor? I plan on calling all of the pediatricians accepting Medicaid in my area to see if they will have us, and does anyone have suggestions for doing this?
Im having a hard time finding much information about the whole process. like when i go to the hospital to deliver will i need to bring any paper work or fill out any forms prior to to keep my baby from getting the hep b vaccine.
if there are any moms in the Huntsville area who didn't vaccinate and that could just talk to me about the process and their experience i would greatly appreciate it because im extremely lost and nervous.
Don't give up! One is out there!
As far as delivery I would definatly put it in writing your birth plan. Give a copy to your doc for your medical records and have a few with you at delivery! Also give to your doc before your third trimester. I waited and ended up delivering a month early...I was a basket case telling every nurse everytime my son left the room "No vax". The hospital was ready to see me leave :-)
Not in your area, but try looking for a family doctor rather than a pediatrician if you are having a hard time finding someone who will accept you into their practice. They are generally more open to non-vaxxing families.
ped who will "allow" you to not vax at all -- he doesn't agree with non vaxing and you have to sign some sort of waiver, but he says it's your child and therefore your choice. I have no idea about the insurance he accepts, but I will PM you his info.
