I agree with everything you said in your post "Quirky"; and I want to add that pregnancy is the time when she'll be more receptive to the information (IMO) because the baby is more 'real' now. It's much easier to dismiss information on a hypothetical baby.

However, I have a couple friends with whom I've discussed circumcision and they don't have kids, or plans for kids yet; and I doubt they'll even consider circ now. And when the time comes that they do have them, if they even THINK about circ'ing their boy, they're going to get a harsh refresher course from yours truly.

Thanks for this. I am the poster that said I am waiting til they get pregnant to say anything. I am doing that for several reasons. One is that I'm not that close to one of the women, and they are having trouble conceiving, and I don't want to make them discuss it right now if they don't want to. The second is exactly what you say above, I think I will get dismissed if there aren't those Mama hormones in play. (Especially by the other woman, who is a good friend of mine, but it's going to take some doing to get her to listen to my information. She already thinks I"m nuts....)

In a case where she's having trouble TTC, I can understand waiting to approach the topic. However, keep in mind that it doesn't have to be about HER baby. You can have the conversation in the general sense of "OMG! I read an article on NBC news website the other day. You'll never believe this!! They put foreskin in face cream!!....Yeah! After I learned that, I got to wondering, and I did some researching..." Make that a platform to launch into conversation about it; bringing up the very best points you can think of on how it's a money making business at the expense of brand new helpless babies; and how the industry relies on the ignorance of society to keep feeding their wallets.

Knowing it's often difficult to approach people about circumcision, I've decided to do what I can to help out. Please check out my thread on the subject.
