Do you have a local yahoo group for "crunchy" or AP-type mamas? We have one here, so I bet if you search yahoo groups you could find and join one for Philly. Those types of questions are often asked/answered on our group. I've also met most of my local friends through our group. It's been a life-saver for me. Good luck!

Your pedi should not be pushing you into vaxing either way.....what you say goes....but if you want one that agrees with what you say there's another story...

On mothering.com theres a forum called "find/ing your tribe" many moms have found using that helpful in their quest for an "open" pedi.

While others have found great success using a family/general doc, as opposed to a pedi., as their practice doesn't rely so heavily on the vaccines.

Good luck

I almost forgot about Mothering.com's "Tribe" area - that's a great place to look, too, like the PP said

I had a second to look while DD was NAKing...

Here's one yahoo group:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FNLPhilly/

And you could look through these if you have a few minutes:
http://groups.yahoo.com/search?query...=-1&sg=10&ss=1

There's a babywearing group and an ECing group, so even if you just joined one of those, maybe the mamas there could point you in the right direction.

Ask the Vax or No-Circ board at MDC, there was a place they directed me to and I found ours! I don't know if he's pro- or anti- vax but what he told me was that as a parent, the decision is mine and he won't push me one way or the other.

Try your local LLL leader. She might know somebody.
