She didn't. This was very, very late in pregnancy. I mentioned to her that I was afraid ds would be circed without our knowledge, and she said not to worry that it would have been her doing the circ, and she knows not to do it to our son. it still doesn't make it ok. I felt differently about circ pre kid though... it bother's me so very much more now than it did before I saw my perfect whole ds.
Naive parents may think, "If she's asking it must be a good thing. Surely she wouldn't offer something that could cause [meatal ulcers, infection from a vulnerable wound, meatal stenosis, seizure, heart attack, stroke, loss of penis, fibrosis, hemorrhage, DEATH!] any harm..."
If they've gotta know, why not rephrase the question:
"Will you keep your son intact?"
MisaGoat, I encourage you to bring this up at your next prenatal. Simply express how annoyed you are that a holistic care provider would even question if you would want to reduce your son's healthy penis. There is nothing [W]hol[e]istic about that! And ask them what kind of education they provide their clients regarding a complete set of male genitals. What do they know about an intact prepuce organ? What are their credentials? as in, how knowledgeable are they about the normal intact male genitals?
