Pregnancy articles & tips
Let Huggies give you a guiding hand through your 9 months of pregnancy with practical tools, articles, tips and advice to help you along your path to motherhood.
P.S. I think you will find most midwives will try and discourage you from doing it, but, don't let that stop you if that is what you want to do.

I just went to my doctor and he gave me the referral to see another doctor who did it.
Is there another midwife or doctor you can ask? Ask her again and if she changes the subject just keep asking her...maybe raising your voice a little each time...but not screaming at her of course although it sounds like you may feel like it. I think just ignore her tries to change the subject and continue ti ask her your question. Walk out if she's going to ignore you...maybe then she might listen!

True- it's your doctor/obstetrician you should be talking to. But if you wish to bring this up with your midwife then try saying something to the effect of: "I would like to have some information on circumcision. Do you have a problem with providing me with this information? No? It's just that everytime i broach the subject, you avoid answering me.........." that is how you could get the ball rolling anyway.
Goodluck and don't allow anybody to knock you for making this difficult decision.
Lots of people disagree with circumcision, but good on you for admitting that you're not one of them.
Each to their own.
My nephew had to have it done when he was 10 or 11. Would have been much better for him had it been done when he was a baby.
If we have a boy, it will definately be done. (Besides, it's gotta look like Daddy's).

i dont believe in circumcision, if it wasn't meant to be there it wouldn't be!!! although my partner does want our child ( if boy) to be done. he was circumsized. I think if u teach your boys to clean properly i dont think it needs to be done!.
Im not saying circumcision is bad or the wrong thing to do but i just wouldn't have mine done. so i guess each to thier own
