    Hi there, I'm new to the forum and will try to locate other posts. I am looking for a doctor/pediatrician in Cary, Raleigh or Wake Forest. Someone who will respect our choice not to vaccinate / delay vaccination further. Son is 2 years. We had one out in Chapel Hill but moved back to Raleigh...

    My wife is 24 weeks and we haven’t had any luck finding a doctor that will allow us to make our own decisions on vaccines (we’ve done extensive research and know exactly what we want to do). We are willing to travel. So far we’ve heard about Dr. Sears in Clarksville, but she is no longer taking...
  3. NICU & Preemie Parenting
    Hi ladies! I am looking for a preemie friendly pediatrician for our daughter. She is 15 months adjusted. Our doctor keeps pushing me to get her into therapies, we do not agree (mostly husband). Do you know of any pediatricians in the south suburbs of Chicago (Oak Lawn) who let preemies develop...

    Hi! I am looking for a good DSHS-friendly family doctor or pediatrician who is not pushy about vaccines in the Port Townsend area. Also, I am not currently pregnant, but would love to hear about the homebirth midwives in this area. We are still fairly new to the area, from Alaska. Thanks!

    Hi Folks- I'm new here! And a new mom to be expecting April 24th! I just registered with a nearby pediatrician's office that seems fine, but I am truly interested in finding a more integrative practice for my little one. If any of you guys have recommendations of doctors, naturopaths, or...

    I've heard a lot of different things about vaccinations causing Autism in children. While I'm not a medical professional, I do believe that getting a professional medical opinion from your family doctor is beneficial before deciding not to vaccinate your children. Your family doctor can give you...
  8. Vermont. New Hampshire, Maine
    Hi, We are in search of a pediatrician or a PCP that can see my daughter (3), soon to be arriving son, and myself (if it is a PCP). We want someone that is supportive of alternative vax schedules, co sleeping, breast feeding, etc and ideally even into suggesting alternative options for...
  9. Parenting
    <p>In the past year we recently switched our family to a new pediatrics practice that is closer to where we live.  In many ways it is ideal--close by, AP-friendly (for a pediatrics practice), friendly staff, great hours, their willingness to work with us on an alternative vax schedule.  There...

  11. Selective & Delayed Vaccination
    <p>I do a delayed vaccine schedule with my 13-month-old son, as I do with my 3-year-old daughter. My son has only been to the doctor 3 times since birth, but with 3 different doctors because we have moved 3 times since he was born. A few weeks ago I took him to the doctor (the third time), and...
  12. Nutrition and Good Eating
    <p>I have three children, DS 1(8), DS 2 (5) & DD 15 months.  With the exception of my DS 1 (He is actually 50% for weight & 75% for height but I still get comments about him too), the other two are barely on the charts as far as percentile goes.  Both are hovering, respectively around the 5%...

      Photo by Jennifer Margulis "When my baby turned one, my doctor told me to feed her ice cream every night, because she was measuring small for her age. It was my first child and I didn't know better. No wonder she doesn't like carrots. I was just clueless. Clueless. Thankfully when #2...

    When my friend B. went to see a specialist last Thursday, she watched a representative from a drug company sail into the waiting room carrying six cups of coffee and a bag of pastries for the office. In the meantime she sat and waited. And waited. And waited. She had an 8:30 a.m. appointment but...

    When my oldest daughter, Hesperus, was a baby, I dutifully took her to "Well Baby" doctor visits. We lived in Atlanta, Georgia, a city known for its searing summers, ice cold sweet tea, streets named after peaches, and harried doctors. I would take my healthy baby into a waiting room full...
