Hi everyone! We recently relocated to Oak Park and would love to make some new friends! I have a 4 yo daughter and a 20 mo daughter and I'm due at the end of September with our third. i am currently a SAHM and we are looking for others to get together with some mornings (or afternoons) during the week. These cold Chicago days cooped up in the apartment are killing us! I don't have a car during the day right now so  any play groups would need to be right in Oak Park or easily accessible from the Green Line.


I would also love recs for a family dentist and a family Dr or pediatrician (delayed/selective vax friendly).


Anyone that can suggest a play group or Dr?

We're up in the northwest suburbs but come down to the west suburbs often.  We actually use Dr Schattauer in Oak Park and he's been great.  We went through several "typical" doctors who wanted us to catch up on the vax schedule (at the time we were very delayed/selective vaxxing) and that's when we found Dr. Schattauer.  Now we are non-vaxxing and he's perfectly fine with whatever you choose.  Here's his website:


I wish I knew of some play groups!

We were members of the AP Oak Park group :) We do not live in the area anymore :(


Also we were apart of Oak Park Moms Group on meetup, they were nice and did a variety of activities in the area.
