circumcision?

we haven’t found out the gender of our baby yet, but me & my husband we’re talking & he wants to circumcise our baby if it’s a boy. i’ve read so many things about how awful it is for the baby & i just want to get an opinion from some moms that have & have not had it done. 😭😭😭 i’m conflicted.

We did it, and I cried when I saw it afterwards. It's just one of those things when you're under the hormones of giving birth and you see the way it looks right after surgery that just makes you cry. My aunt(who delivered my son and is a midwife) told me she saw the procedure dont so many times that it freaked her out and she decided not to circumcise her sons.

Please watch American circumcision on Netflix. It is a COSMETIC procedure that greatly reduces natural function and sexual pleasure for both partners.

It’s genital mutilation. If you wouldn’t remove your daughter’s clitoral hood you shouldn’t remove your son’s foreskin. It’s not medically necessary at all. It’s an elected cosmetic procedure. It’s not even covered by insurance. If you think your son is born perfect you should mean all of him.

Not necessary. But your choice entirely.

I have one boy who’s circumcised, he’s 13 and my 7 month old isn’t. It’s fine either way. You’ll make the choice that’s right for your family.

Soo I struggled with this also and I too did not know what I was having . After reading and informing myself I decided against it. Listen to yourself and do what you feel is right! This is just the beginning of everyone having an opinion! This is your baby. Whatever you decide I’m sure it will be what you feel in your heart is right. Good luck !
