Our son is due in December, and we are looking for a family doctor who will be able to handle appointments with our newborn as well as check-ups for me and my husband down the line. We are having a natural birth at a birthing center, so we're looking for a doctor who is natural-birth-friendly. Also, we haven't made up our mind on all vaccines, so we'd like someone who is open-minded and can tell us the benefits and risks (and not judge us depending on what decision we make). Any recommendations would be extremely welcome!

Dr. Matthew Burnett is a naturopathic physician, so he is great with the natural side of things. Dr. Steven Tucker is great, too, but I'm not sure if he is doing family practice right now or not. Dr. Tucker is an MD, not an ND, but is much more naturally minded than most.
