I just moved to the Mansfield, OH area and am searching for a place (other than my home) where I can have a natural childbirth experience and a midwife or doctor that supports natural childbirth. I am 18 weeks pregnant right now. I also have an 11-month old baby girl that needs a no vaccination friendly pediatrician in this area. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Hey there! I am in Mansfield, OH too. I wish I could help you, I really do but I don't know of any resources. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> But if you ever want to chat it up sometime, let me know. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I have a doula friend in the area who is a part time receptionist at a CNM's office. I'll get a hold of to see who the CNM is.

Well, I think I found a physician who is Bradley method friendly in Galion! So Yay for that :) His name is Dr. Hoff and he said he is completely comfortable with letting me labor and birth naturally. My first appointment is the 21st, so we'll see how it goes then. Now I just have to begin my search for a pediatrician who won't have a heart attack that my child is not vaccinated... ugh! Who knew it would be so complicated to deviate from the mainstream!<br><br>
punkysquirrel, since you are in Mansfield, do you know of any MOPS meetings there?<br><br>
Thanks for the replies!<br>
Christine :)

We're south of you by an hour, but we have a local family doctor who is comfortable with no vax. Try looking for a family doctor, instead of a ped. Also, there are Amish to the east and south of you - there may be doctors who serve them who will be comfortable with no vax (but some of them DO vax, so don't stereotype!).
