I'm thinking of switching both DD and me to a family doctor - one who's OK with not vaxing.<br><br>
Do you have any suggestions how I might find such a doctor in St. Louis? Even my crunchiest girlfriend does delayed vaccinations, so I'm not sure who else to ask.<br><br>
Thanks!

I found my ped who is willing to uphold my religious exemption by searching in the internet and calling around. I called an alternative birthing center that referred me to his practice. Call midwife practices or search the internet and then start calling.<br><br>
Go in for a consultation if you can -- and clear everything up BEFORE an appt so that you don't get caught in being put on the spot about your decision.

Try your local waldorf school (there is one in St. Louis) and ask if there is a doctor that a lot of families at the school go to. Waldorf schools tend to be sort of crunchy and into alternative medicine.

I was going to suggest the very same thing. Most Waldorf communities have connections with an MD trained in anthroposophical medicine who could be a great resource and health care provider for your entire family.
