Natural Birth & Parenting Natural Birth & Parenting
We had her 15 month wellness check today, and she looks good! I just adore her pediatrician.

She doesn't push vaccines, her kids were not vaccinated either. And same goes for nurses.
She is a LC, and same with a couple of the nurses. She has had 3 home births (this is by far the coolest thing about her)!! She took the time to explain to me why many pediatricians will recommend a vit D supplement to BFed babies, which is actually because many minority, inner-city kids, who were BFed were D deficient so they instilled it upon everyone, although it is not necessary. She recommends BM for ear infections, congestion, etc. She will not just prescribe antibiotics for any little thing. I am happy to say the only antibiotics DD has had was in her eyes when she was born, and nothing since then!

And she recommended some midwives to me because we are considering a homebirth for our next child!

It turned out to be a good day! I remember dreading to go to DD's appointments with her old Pedi, and just dreading it, but we switched at her 9 month I believe and they are great.

They have a list like this in "I choose not to vaccinate group," and she is on it!

That is awesome. You should start a post similar to the crunchy-friendly hospitals and OBs post.. Only for crunchy-friendly pediatricians and family practitioners

Crunchy is a term used for the more natural minded. Many women in this group consider themselves crunchy!
