Specifically, tell me about the Carbondale area. DH just interviewed for a job at SIU and I'd like to know more about it.

What is the birth community like, both in-hospital and out-of-hospital?
Are there any good, NCB-friendly OB's?
Are there any good CPM's or DEM's, either above ground or underground?
Are there any good FP's or pediatricians that are friendly to HB, BF, non-vax, etc?
Is the area homeschool-friendly?
Anything else I should know?

Hello!

I live in Carbondale. My husband is a grad student at SIU and we have an 11 month little boy. I'm sure MsBlack will give you the details on the area. If you end up moving here and want to do a playdate or anything let me know .
