Choosing not to Vaccinate

I have posted about this before and was happy to see some of the comments. What I need now is help for my pregnant friend. She and her husband are with us on not vaccinating, but are finding it incredibly difficult to find a doctor that is willing to work with them. If any of you live in the Upstate of SC and know of any doctors, GP or Ped, that works with non-vaccinating parents please leave me a comment.

As I have said before that it is an extremely personal choice that you have to make as a parent. Why is it that everybody else makes it so difficult for you to make? The medical community FORCES us to follow there schedule or you cannot find a doctor.

Need more reading material for vaccinating or not - 909shot and think twice . Be glad you have never been in our shoes.

Hi, I found your blog from Bring the Rain and wanted to pick your brain about vacines. I live in Texas, so sorry I don't know any docs in SC. I don't know if all states are the same, but in TX all newborns are given Hep B, Vitamin K and then they put drops in their eyes (can't remember the name now) I did all of this with my first 3 but have since then started doing much research. We actually stopped vaccinating almost 2 years ago and our pedi hasn't given me too much grief. However, we do mostly homeopathic remedies, so don't visit the doc much anymore. We are not going to do the Hep B, but do you know anything about the vitamin K (why it is given, if there are any side effects, etc.) Thanks so much
