chicago area homebirthers....need help finding a pediatrician quick

I know this may be a long shot, but I thought I'd give it a try JIC :)

I just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy Tuesday morning at home and both me and him are doing wonderfully :)

But because he wasn't officially evaluated by a hospital, I'm having trouble finding a pediatrician to see him. We have a pediatrician for my other 2 boys, but they're also homebirth providers (we didn't use them for our birth) and provide alternative medicine instead of traditional....their office policy requires 1 appointment with a traditional pediatrician/family care physician before being able to take my son on as a patient of theirs.....I'm hoping someone in the chicagoland area knows of a doctor that is supportive of homebirth that I can try calling?
