Hey mamas, I am hoping to connect with some of you from the Bowling Green area! My husband just got a job there and we will be moving from Denver, Co. in the middle of September. I have a homeopathic Ped. here who is A-Okay with our non vax beliefs for my 10 month old son. From what I have researched that seems to be a difficult thing to come across in Bowling Green and I am hoping someone has a reccomendation for me! Do any of you go to a ped in Nashville? Also!! Would anyone be interested in a play group?? I am desperate to meet some like minded families Anything else I should know about Bowling Green? Fill me in!

I don't have any answers to your questions, but I just wanted to say "Welcome!". We live an hour north of Bowling Green. The ped that my kids see in Elizabethtown has never asked us about vaccinations, and we just haven't brought it up.

We've been down to Bowling Green a few times just for fun. There is a good Thai restaurant close to the Mall that my kids love.

Like PP, I dont have a lot of answers for you. I live about an hour and a half north of BG, but I would think you could hit up a few of the coffee shops and post something on their corkboards about starting a playgroup. Welcome to Kentucky!

I just wanted to say hello! I'm a bgky transplant from DFW. It's quite the culture shock IMO. (Of course I'm not the best about getting out there and meeting people)

I've lived in Bowling Green my entire life. I'm happy to answer any questions you have. My children see Dr. Debra Sowell at Graves Gilbert Clinic. She is pro-vax, but has NEVER hassled me about my delayed and selective vax schedule.

We live about an hour and a half west of B.G., but I'm a WKU grad, so I have spent quite a bit of time there. My farmer meets in B.G. every other Friday. They are great people and have wonderful, real food! They live outside *******, so it's fairly close.
Here's a link to their site:

No, I don't benefit financially from recommending them. It just think they are the best!
I wish I lived closer to them.

I also know of a great doula in the area, if you're interested. As well as a midwife not far away in TN.

Hello!

My suggestion would be to look for a ped in Nashville. I haven't had any luck here in Bowling Green. I moved to BG last year and it was a bit of a culture shock for me as we lived in the midwest for a while. Welcome to the community and let me know if you would like any suggestions on fun baby/toddler activities.

We are hoping to move to this area (applying for jobs, so we'll see) so I just thought I'd chime in to say I love reading this and would be happy to hear more about alternative-ish sorts of things in the Bowling Green (and Elizabethtown) region. Or Nashville for that matter, especially midwives. Thanks!

We now live here. Dr. Fraser is not a particularly alternative doctor, be he is known as the go-to doctor in Bowling Green that will not hassle people about not vaccinating. Dr. Kalb is in Franklin (a bit south of Nashville) and is known as an alternative doctor who does not push vaccinations. That said, I do not think he is taking new patients at the time. I'd welcome others posting on here about good experiences they've had with doctors in the area who will take families who do not vaccinate and will not bother them about it. I'd also welcome suggestions of more alternative doctors. As this point we are open to driving to Clarksville or Nashville. Or anywhere in between.
