(Are you talking about by medical staff? Medical staff was great...family was a different story....)
My first kidlet: My midwife (delivered with midwife in hospital) never asked me. My sister
told me to ask her about it because she was pretty sure she would convince me to do it.
: My midwife mentioned how it may effect breastfeeding and that it wasn't necessary.
No one said anything to me in the hospital. I delivered in Pitt Memorial in Greenville, NC. One nurse came in and asked me, I said no. She sighed relief and said, "Good, that's one less baby I have to torture today."
I only had shirts that read boldy "Do not circumcise me!!!" for my little boy while he was in the hospital, that were long sleeved...and he needed to wear one..and his pediatrician came in, read it backwards (I realized how safe we were and I was alittle bit embarrased about my crude shirts seemingly shouting at the staff, and turned it inside out but it still had heavily bled through) and called out to me (I was in the bathroom, my husband was out there with him.) "Dont worry hon, we're not gonna circ him!
I took him to the another doc at a couple days old, he never mentioned anything....took him to get vaxed once, no one said anything, and took him to the emergency room twice over first mom jidder issues (first one was colic, couldn't get him to stop screaming and thought something was horribly wrong, second time because he had blood in his stool because of dairy in my milk) No one ever touched or mentioned his penis. They looked both times, said absolutely nothing...i was all prepared to tell them not to touch his penis, never had too.
It's hard to me to muster up enough courage to have to speak up to against a doctor doing something. I feel like every time I have to take him to one, I have to prepare myself for confrontation, and I never had one, ever. I was kinda internet-taught that the doctors are "out to get my poor infants foreskins" and the ones I've went to (all these ones are different) never are. So I've kinda learned to relax a little bit. I still am vigilant because I never know a doctor I haven't met's stance on circing, but I'm kinda more laid back about it now. I live in south eastern VA, and this is from Northern VA down to northern NC where I've been to doctors.
