Hi<br>
My name is Melanie, and I live in Spokane. I am SAHM with 6 kids. 7th comming in June. I am slowly becoming more crunchy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hippie.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hippie"> as I learn I don't have to follow the herd!!! Would love to meet other crunchy style moms here. I am also looking for a ped here in the area that won't give me crap about selective vax. Anyone know one?<br>
TTFN<br>

Hi Melanie, I am Kelly and my daughter Morgan just turned two. My doctor, Monica German is really great about all that stuff so far. Morgan had low iron for awhile and she didn't give me guff about breastfeeding her still, or make it seem like it was my fault. She is at Rockwood CLinic so fees are reasonable to boot! Hope to meet you soon!<br>

Hi Melanie,<br>
We don't vax at all and go to Dr Elizabeth Tomeo. She's in the book. We went to Dr Crum at the Rockwood Clinic on Country homes. He didn't give us much crap either. Just made us sign a form. When Marah Jade got whooping cough he didn't give us crap then either.<br><br>

Hi Melanie! This is a bit late, but we go to dr. bennett up north. i live on the south hill and feel the hour commute is worth it, if that says anything. his # is 292-2001, and he has been very pro-bfing, cding, cosleeping and nonvaxing.

Hi everyone!<br>
This doc info is great!<br><br>
Just arrived from Asheville NC...my hubby will be working in Liberty Lake, so we are renting down here while we look for a house. I'm hoping to bring some crunch to LL. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Remembering how beautiful Spokane is with the mountains all around the city!<br><br>
Do the MDCers have a playgroup?

I don't know if there is a playgroup for MDCers but sometimes there are get togethers. There is a moms group in Spokane called MAMAS. I have never been to it but have heard great things. Contact Tamy Roloff at 534-6057. I think they meet on Fridays for an hour. Welcome to the area.<br>

Tamy is in the middle of moving to western WA right now, so contacting her wouldn't work too well, but MAMAS is continuing to meet every friday. I have been a couple of times, but it is on the other side of the city for me, so we don't go very often. The spokane MDC moms don't have an official playgroup, we just get together every once in a while through the tribe forum. hth<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

A regularly meeting MDC playgroup would be a cool thing to have, especially with the warmer weather starting up (if any of you were blinded for a moment today, that would be me wearing shorts for the first time since last Fall, with whiter than a ghost skin...)

You are braver than me! Seriously considered shorts today but did not want to see my pasty white legs all day. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
