<b>We are MOVING to MORRISTOWN, TENNESSEE!!</b><br><br>
You guys help me out. we are moving within 90 days to Morristown... just northeast of Knoxville and not too far from Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge.<br><br>
I need names of good nonvax friendly peds, and are there any LLL groups in the area??<br><br>
Dh's job is moving us.. we may be moving in much less time than 90 days...Thanks for any input!<br><br>
we are also interested in any homebirth midwives in the area... Thanks!

My mom lives about 20 min. from there, in Jefferson City. She's 60, though, and well past the childbearing years... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> ...but, if you're into hiking/backpacking, she's started a hiking/backpacking club at their church (crunchy church) and is always looking for someone to hit the trail with. She's nuts.

I don't know about LLL but I do know there is a really good LC who used to have a support group a few years back up there. Not sure about the peds; good luck searching though. There's another thread about a pretty laid back ped in Knoxville; you should PM that person and get that one's name as a backup in case you have to drive in for that.<br><br>
ETA: Here we go; it's lactationmom's thread. <a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=355604" target="_blank">friendly ped</a>

My sister lives in Morristown, I will ask her tomorrow. My parents live in Sneadville, about 45 minutes away. They are in the middle of nowhere!!! I try to get down to visit whenever I can, but it is a 8 hour drive for me. With a new baby, don't see that happening too soon (he hates his carseat) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> But we plan to rent a cabin at Pigeon Forge next summer and spend a week there with everyone!

I am in the area. I am a midwife assistant, but have done homebirths. I don't know any non-vax friendly peds yet, (sorta past that stage) However I am updating my resource list to reflect our new location. We were in Southside VA....keep me posted. You are only about 45 min from me...
