wave.gif  Hi all,   I am looking to move to the Council Bluffs/Omaha area in the next year and need some insight into the area.  Are there many AP/holistic parenting groups?  How about non-vax friendly health care providers?  How about homebirth midwives?  Tell me what you love/hate about the area.  Any and all info is welcome and appreciated!

 

Many Thanks!!!

http://www.facebook.com/#!/OmahaNP  That is the Omaha area natural parents link and that will link you to many other groups too.  Our ped which is amazing and no vax friendly is Dr. Whitcomb at Methodist Physicians 186th and Q (Across from Millard West Highschool). Welcome to the Big O.

Katie covered about everything I was going to, lol. We see. Dr. W as well. Homebirths aren't huge and encouraged here but they can be done. I attended one this weekend in IA, amazing!

No API groups in Omaha.  But we have one in Lincoln.  I just posted a thread on it today.

We have a mama who just had a baby who was looking at starting an API group here in Omaha though.

That would be great to have an API of Omaha!  Invite her (and anyone else) to our next API meeting.  API leader applicants need to have a recommendation from an AP leader to apply.  (If there's a leader available.)
