Good morning to all,
I'm new to Ocala Mom and wanted some suggestions on OB's. I've looked up some on the web and read lots of reviews and now I'm definitely confused and worried on making the wrong decision.
I've read your forum on pregnancy but there's no recent comments. Please HELP. I have a few OB's in mind but I would like feedback from recent patients. Impatiently waiting for your feedback,
Thanks everyone from Ocala Mom

Hey everyone! Thanks for all of your advice recently regarding the local schools. What are some great neighborhoods around Ocala for young families? There is plenty of real estate in the good school districts, but we really know nothing about the various neighborhoods. We aren't seeking out an expensive gated community...just a quiet middle class community full of good people that's not too far from downtown. We're fine with something that needs cosmetic updating,…Continue

Hi. Just wanted to invite everyone to the new Christian Moms group. Kids ages should be between 12-17. Would like to meet up at the local Baseline park for get togethers, fun and food. I'm also a member of Meadowbrook Church. Our kids are in a transitional period right now. Let's help teach them to get involved and be leaders.
