I'm not really sure if I can post this, but I'm sure I'll be told if I can't.<br><br>
I am a member of a non profit group, and we are hosting a Summertime celebration of Motherhood and normal pregnancy! It will be held this Saturday, check out <a href="http://www.bellies-in-bloom.com" target="_blank">www.bellies-in-bloom.com</a> !

Thanks so much for your post!!! I'm an East Cobb mom due with 3rd child in July and I was thrilled to see the event!<br><br>
My children are teenagers and this new baby is a total "over 40" suprise for our family. Most of the folks and resources that I used last time around (early 90's) have moved or no longer exist so your post and the celebration come at a perfect time for us!<br><br>
I posted yesterday looking for pediatrician recommendations. I see that you are in Cartersville and I wondered if you have any experience with any North Cobb/Kennesaw area doctors.<br><br>
Regardless, please let me hear from you. The closest group that I've seen on the board is Gwinnett county. I haven't been able to make a LLL meeting yet due to my work schedule but I'm hoping to get there in the next couple of weeks.<br><br>

I am so glad I decided to post the message! I will look forward to seeing you there. I'll be there until about 12 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> There are a few peds around, one we see now is Dr. Laurette Ho, she seems pretty mainstream, but I chose her when my ds was 15 months, she accepted military insurance, and well, I like her for him, not sure if I'll like her for a newborn, but we shall see. The only other ones I know that have a good reputation are either all the way over in Alpharetta! There will be a bunch of people who know thoes ped's at Saturday's event :LOL because i'm having a total pg brain moment and can't think of anyone else (except the one, or is it two in Alpharetta)

Kay - I'm thinking about changing pediatricians. I live in Marrietta (E. Cobb). A couple of days ago I was reading one of the GA threads. They were talking about pediatricians in the marietta/alpharetta area. Here is what they said:<br><br><b>Dr. Kute (holistic AP Pediatrician in Alpharetta) made a recommendation to the Georgia Birth Network a little while ago for a pediatrician in Marietta,</b><br><i>Dr. Stephanie Poole. She said she is extremely supportive of breastfeeding and they worked together 4 yrs ago. Her office<br>
address is 707 Whitlock Ave D30, Marietta GA 30064. You can reach her<br>
at 770-428-1117.</i><br><br>
also<br><br><i>Dr. laura bleekrode. shes w/ alpha peds</i> too. has 7 kids and bf them all. shes currently co-sleeping and bfing her 2.5 year old. we love her!<br><br><br><i>Margaret Boudreaux with Alpharetta pediatrics</i> is a good one. They have an office in Cumming and an office in the Roswell/Alpharetta area. Everything you mentioned she supports... I like her a lot.<br><br>
You can try one of these doctors. It seems Dr. Poole is the only doctor in the immediate area that has come up in conversation. Hope this helps. Good luck with the pregnancy.<br><br>
BRIGHTEST BLESSINGS!

Thanks to both of you!<br><br>
I'm very excited about Saturday's event since it's been a very long time since I've been connected to any "Mothering" families...<br><br>
