I know as AD, you're not accustomed to paying for your care, and didn't expect to when you started out. But if you want to maintain your integrity, you really only have 2 choices. Pay your midwife for the services she renders, or explain the situation and go with another provider (do you have access to an MTF?). She might even be able to work out a payment option or reduced fee, depending on your situation  If you really want a homebirth, $1500 isn't that bad. I'm an AD...
I didn't read the rest of the replies, but here's food for thought: IF he hates being intact, if it causes him physical and emotional trouble,  he can get circ'd later. He will understand what is being done and will be able to get proper pain medication during and after the decision. Most importantly, it will be HIS choice.  If you get him circ'd now, and he hates it, if it causes him pain or heartache, he can't undo it later, and that choice will have been taken from...

Hi! DH has been a friend for years. We're definitely of the liberal variety. I know the UU bookstore online has a lot of kid/family focused books that would be compatible with the Quaker worldview. I haven't read it yet, but have "non-violent communication" on my "to read" list.

He's got what I guess is called an "incomplete circ", so all the skin and anatomy is still there. We found out a couple years ago (when FIL was trying to get me to have me boys cut) that the doc "just took a little off the tip", so DH is actually cut- I had to try...

with one of my babe's milk and meat made me nauseous. I might have *died* without my hummus!!
sounds typical to me. We move a lot, and every congregation we've visited is VERY family friendly.
