i think this is a totally personal decision. as an RN we were taught that there is NO medical need for a circ and that if the parents can teach their son how to care for himself, same as a parent has to do with a daughter, then there is NO reason to circ. that said, MOST parents still opt for the circ'd route. the numbers are going down but circ'd still outweighs uncirc'd.
as for my Personal beliefs. i would not do it. as a NICU RN i witnessed way too many circs being done. i hated taking the babies in there
. no matter what the parents wishes are there just is NO humane way to circ a baby boy. parents often request to attend and i will tell you straight up, you don't want to see your son go through that. no way jose!!!!! it's hard enough as an RN having no blood relation to the child. i couldn't imagine a parent being able to stomach it.
ultimately, you have to make a decision and wether you decide to leave it be and let your son decide when he grows up, or you choose to have it done now, just make sure it's a choice you and your DH made together and one you can both live with. i'd say if you are really anit circing right now, then ask your DH to wait a while and then have it done when your son is a little older......... you know, compromise
best of luck with your decision, and please remember, it's YOUR decision. there is no right or wrong answer
