Midwife and Doula near Palatine, IL

I've always visited an Ob-Gyn and am not familiar with midwives or doulas. Now that I'm pregnant, I've heard a lot of good things about midwives/doulas. If you've had experiences before, can you share the pros/cons from your point of view? Additionally, do you have a personal referral for a midwife and doula in the area that you can share? If you could also kindly describe reasons why you recommend them that would be very helpful as well. I live in Palatine but nearby suburb areas may work too. Thanks!!

Allergic to the Dog?

My 18-month old has a pretty-much contiuously runny nose. It usually combined with nasal congestion. Fortunately, it doesn't seem to bother her and it doesn't transform into infections or other problems. I suspect she may be allergic to our dog. Is there a way to tell? Is it possible to test for just a dog allergy? Or do I have to subject her to a huge painful test? I really don't want to do that, but if she is allergic I need to konow.

Seeking a Child Therapist / Counselor / Psychologist in the Western Suburbs

Can anyone recommend a good therapist / counselor / psychologist specializing in children? My daughter, age 4, is having extreme behavioral issues that I need help dealing with. I have no experience with this and I don't want to just pick a random name out of the phone book. Thanks for any insight you might be able to share! Several people have suggested that more information about her specific behaviors would be helpful, so here's what I'm seeing: Extreme tantrums including self-injury (biting herself and leaving marks, scratching...

What to Do About This Orthodontist?

So my daughter has completed her “phase one” of orthodontic work to fix an overbite. During that course of treatment, starting around the age of 10, she had 6 teeth pulled. The first two by a dentist and the other 4 by a oral surgeon with laughing gas. After the first teeth pulling my daughter was beyond traumatized so that is why we spent the extra dough to have an oral surgeon do the next recommended teeth to extraction. Now 2 years later, we are in the limbo phase before the 2nd phase where the orthodontist wants to put braces on...

Need Advice on Fertility Specialist

Hello! I am in need of some husband and I have been trying to conceive for one and a half years w/two m/c.

General Practioner Vs. Pediatrician

Currently, I have my daughter going to a General practioner. I have no real complaints with her medical care as she is healthy. However, I wonder if there are any benefits of going to a pediatrician that I am missing by taking her to a GP. She was breastfed for the first year of her life, she's a pretty healthy eater but she is not on any vitamins. Should she be?

Difference Between Orthopedist and Podiatrist?

My daughter has an overlapping second toe that is causing her discomfort. The pediatrician finally sent us to see a podiatrist. We have seen two podiatrist so far and with little luck.

I do not want to drug my child. And I can not...
