Hi fellow WA mamas,


I am a FTM expecting my baby girl next month, I just started researching for a pediatrician for my child after finding out that my health insurance United Healthcare doesn't cover services from Naturopathic Doctor from my midwife/ND.


As I have made a decision to delay vaccines until age of 2 (and also plan to decline a few vaxs), I am in need of some good MD recommendations that you may have on the Eastside near Bellevue.  Someone who can at least tolerate the more alternative vax schedule?


Thank you for reading, any information would help! joy.gif

We used Sharon Hempler at Redmond Pediatrics for awhile and thought she was really good.  She was good with my intact son.  She was fine with delayed vaccinations, but it's been awhile since we've seen her.  Worth a call though.  Another place that is a drive would be Kids Clinic in Seattle.  They may suggest a couple of vaccines, but are fine with your refusing them.  We also have UHC.  We see a naturapath though and work out a cash deal and pay it with our hsa.



Our children make a study of us in a way no one else ever will.  If we don't act according to our values, they will know.~Starhawk Rainbow.gif  New  User Agreement! http://www.mothering.com/community/wiki/user-agreement
