Finding a Pediatrician that Fits
Being a first time mama is overwhelming in many regards. Your body is changing and your hormones are crazy. You go into nesting mode and everything needs to be set and ready... even if the baby isn't expected to arrive for another ohhhh 4 months or so. A very important, and personal, decision is with the pediatrician. It may seem odd visiting a pediatrician when you don't even have a child yet, but how else will you know you've got the right one? Here at urbanMamas, our readers have written the anthology on picking a pediatrician. We've got a few vax-relaxed recommendations. Some recommendations for moms who prefer not to dole out the medications. Pediatricians by area, pediatricians for preemies, pediatricians by network, and last, but not least, a comprehensive discussion about pediatricians vs family doctors. urbanMama Henriette is expecting, and delving into the realm of picking a pediatrician.
I am currently pregnant with my first child and in the process of finding a pediatrician. Does anyone have any recommendations for doctors at either Metropolitan Pediatrics Northwest and/or Pediatric Associates of the Northwest? It is important for my husband and I to find a doctor who is open to alternative treatments and lets us schedule vaccines.
