i need info. in black & white to send to my brother and his wife on why NOT to do it! anything from an m.d. would be very swaying, i feel, as they're already sucked in to the "typical" birthing proces via hospital, ob/gyn, etc. (if you could see me, there's actually smoke coming out of my ears at their decision, but i'm trying to be supportive and gracious.) however, i'm really upset for my nephew, who's due in late july!!!


mahlah's ma,

OMG, are you me? My SIL is also due with her first, beginning of August, and is doing everything the traditional route so far. She hasn't found out the sex of the baby (dh didn't want to), and even though I think it's a girl, I'm worried about it being a boy and being circumsized. I don't have the links handy that you want, go through this forum. You will find a lot! Good for you for trying to educate them. My SIL doesn't listen to me about anything

Well, I'm sure your SIL listens to Dr Sears and Dr Spock, so here are their thoughts about circumcision:
http://faculty.washington.edu/gcd/DOC/spock.html
http://www.askdrsears.com/html/1/t012000.asp

And here's an article from a Pediatrician who is a clinical instructor at the Medical College of Wisconsin and a consultant to the American Academy of Pediatrics Task Force on Circumcision.
http://www.acsh.org/publications/pri...04/circno.html

This is an organisation called "Doctors Opposing Circumcision":
http://faculty.washington.edu/gcd/DOC/

Here's another interesting website, called Health-Central:
http://www.healthcentral.com/centers...r=circumcision

And here's another powerful article, from the unbiased CNN:
http://www.cnn.com/HEALTH/9712/23/ci...tic/index.html
And one more from CNN:
http://www.cnn.com/HEALTH/9903/01/ci...ion/index.html
And I definitely think they should read this consent form, formulated by a pediatrician:
http://199.88.85.15/consent/form.html

Good luck to you!!

You can also go to www.nocirc.org and click on "nocirc publications." There you will find some very informative pamphlets, including one that spells out the potential complications of circumcision. They are not under copyright , so you can print them all off for free!
