My cousin is going to be grandma w/ a little boy.  I brought up "has she researched" circ'ing  and she said no but she is a young open minded young lady and is going to breastfeed etc.  She asked if I had any good informative links to send to her.  Which are be your more favorite links?  Is there a link to view the actual procedure?

I like the Stanford Medical site because nobody can say their site is "fanatically anti-circ" since they do in fact perform circs. But their site list possible complications and has a video of an infant circ.

All three of the techniques on that site have a video at the bottom of the page:  http://newborns.stanford.edu/Gomco.html

 

I also really like:

There are really so many good sites and videos. I think it's important to send her anything so she knows she has a choice not to circ. If she's in the U.S., I'd also let her know the circ rates are falling (some stats say anywhere from 50% to 35%). But she needs to know that plenty of boys are being left intact, no matter where she lives and that cleaning an intact penis is easy (wipe outside only) with no special care or retraction.
