I'm originally from Indiana, but have lived in VA since 2002 (and DC since 94 or so).

DS is intact, of course.

My son was born in WI and is intact. My circd husband proudly put the red anklet band that our son wore in the hospital in his baby book. My son was literally given a red mark at birth to let the hospital know that he was not to be circumcised.

No Circ in Oak Park, IL

My 13 mo is intact and our lo who's due at the end of November will remain intact if it's a boy. When I was expecting my first our midwives discouraged us from circ'ing--although we weren't considering it as my husband is intact and we feel it is a barbaric, unnecessary procedure. It seems like circumcision is rather uncommon here; if I had to guess the rate I'd say it's about 60% intact. Just a guess, though.

Wow, that's great to hear. I like it when someone from a presumably high circ area reports something like that.

We're not from the Midwest (we came from out west) but we are in Omaha for the next few years. We have two wonderfully intact sons and so far, we haven't met anyone here in Omaha that has a son who is intact. And we've been here a year! That's seems crazy to me.

Texas here (I assume we have high rates?). I have a 3 1/2 year old intact boy, all my future babes will be intact, my 2 brothers were intact, and I know several local mamas with intact boys or who have girls but would leave any future boys intact.

Within the military community, circ' rates are VERY high. Even many hispanics, and European spouses succumb to the subtle pressure and have their boys cut. We have 2, healthy intact little guys!

I'm in Michigan and we don't practice genital cutting.

Not yet but I will come late dec/early Jan.

I'm sure DH's family is going to blow a stroke but I'm sticking with the 'my kid my rules, mind your own business' or 'ewwww, you're checking out my sons penis because???'

ETA, I'm from Iowa

I have 1 friend that left her DS's intact, but her husband is Mexican so that's why.

Columbus Ohio. I have a 3 month old intact DS. I was at first really hesitant...but now i am so glad that i left him alone. My biggest reason being i can't imagine causing him any pain at all, it would make me sick.
