MF, oh dear...how horrible that must have felt when she realized the impact what she did... Dilemma: My dreads look much neater (which I like! othewise there are a lot of them that are kinda flat and really funky shaped and there are a lot of loose hairs which I'm not sure where they came from??

Basically just have her there to make your DH comfortable, and to clean up afterward and avoid the type of hospital situation you had afterward last time....
March 1st at 2 pm! And I edited the OP with more info about what the group is currently offering.
Just wanted to add that most if not all of the crunchy families I know in the area have intact sons, I know diff families go to diff pedi's, so I don't think there is just one magical foreskin friendly doc in the area, but perhaps a good range of them?
