Hello!

I am new to this board. I am 24 weeks pregnant with our first child, preparing for a HB with Linda Perry and now looking for a pediatrician in NYC who will repsect that we are vegans and not interested in invasive medicine. Does anyone know of a like-minded pediatrician in NYC, especially one who accepts insurances? I saw a few names mentioned (I scrolled back about 10 pages worth of threads) but didn't see any threads dedicated to this, so hopefully this isn't a question that gets asked every single day!

Also, if there are other pg ladies in NYC who want to chat about HB, breastfeeding, etc., and share books and info, I am trying to connect with some like minded women and would love to hear from anyone.

Thanks!
Aimee

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

I was in the same boat re: Dr search this summer, and after going to The Center for Continuum Health,I'm really happy with my choice.

PM me for names and we can chat some more....

Dr. Stephen Ajl at the Brooklyn Hospital Center is very breastfeeding-friendly, very laid-back, and okay with delayed vax. He's been mentioned on other threads - you could do a search on him. He accepts pretty much every kind of insurance. We like him a LOT.

Good luck!
