Well, maybe she'll learn something and reconsider.

I just went back to the site, and found these updates:

April 19, 2006 - Orion is circumcised by Dr. Goldie. We went in and watched while the procedure was being performed. The doctor & staff were very professional and efficient, the entire surgery lasted less than 10 minutes. They used the plastibel method, so we'll have to watch for it (the foreskin & bell) to fall off in the diaper. I will be keeping that along with his umbilical stump in his memories/keepsakes box.

April 24, 2006 - Three days of poopless diapers, coupled with an extremely hard stomach, and adding in his excruciating wails of agony, we were prompted to go to the doctor's immediately. The doctor commented that his constipation was most likely caused by pain due to the circumcision and that nothing needed to be prescribed.

Agreeing w/ dynamo. This type of things calls for lots of UAViolation profanity.

Actually, if you read more of the site, the woman is just a wackjob.
I feel really sorry for her kid!

Example:
"Although Orion is not quite 4 months yet, we have elected to start him on pablum/baby cereal already (our doctor also concurs with our decision). Although it was his first time eating [cereal] with a spoon, he decided to feed himself and did it quite well. We will be giving him runny cereal once a day, gradually working it up to three times a day and gradually increasing the texture/thickness."

Someone I know paid 400 for a circ here.

We wouldn't have 400 dollars to spare, and the cctb doesn't kick in for a few months after the baby is born anyways. We only get 60 dollars a month for it.

Long story short- I am glad it is unaffordable for some people.

I really think it's ironic that she's going to save it in a "keepsakes" box---you'd think such a valuable thing would best be kept attached to the body, with it's blood supply intact.

OMG I didn't even think of that. She thinks it is disgusting enough to cut off but she still wants to keep it to reminisce over? WTF?

Good to know that with internet archiving, it's likely she won't be able to hide from her child that countless strangers cared more about his suffering & mutilation than she did. (He can print this thread & bring it to his therapist.)

No meds for pain! There are no smilies harsh enough. I hope she has an equivalent experience one day, perhaps that will open her eyes enough to apologize (and make some effort that it never happens to another child or grandchild). Never know, female circ could get popular here. Line up, lady, what's wrong with genital cutting without pain relief? It was good enough for your INFANT.

Pain due to circumcision? Really?

Maybe that woman should be circumcised. If it's good enough for her son, why is she not in line to have her labia torn off?

I don't pity her partner for being intact. I pity that woman for being a complete and utter uneducated fool.

$200 in SK, where I am.

And yet we have one of the highest ratesin Canada (no doubt due to the stories of all the boys who get it done at older ages . . . we have a problem here, I'll be posting for advice sometime soon wrt stat gathering/action plan, etc)

Well during my daughter's pregnancy I had 21 u/s. So far this time I've had 8 and I'm 13 weeks. I'm high risk. My Dr does 3D u/s for his high risk patients (he's a perientologist) and does videos quite regularly for us. And u/s ARE needed in our case.

That's the key words here. You're high risk. She had them optionally for 3d/4d photos/videos. Not medical necessity.

I'm replying after post #11. I love the way you worded it.

The thing that strikes me though, is how early her man-hatred starts coming on: her babe isn't even born yet and she has already decided that he is not good enough. I would ask her why doesn't she just get an abortion if she doesn't want babies?

Thank you. Looking back, I was pretty snarky though.

We have to be careful about bringing up the "A" word here, it's pretty much an off-limits topic on MDC. I do agree though that it's heartbreaking how even before their born, circumcision-minded parents have concluded that their baby isn't good enough just as he comes, he's not perfect, he needs to be corrected immediately after birth, he requires alteration, change, amputation. It's really sick and sad when you think about it in those terms.

On another board, someone recently said, "It took me 9 and a bit months to grow that perfect bit of skin, NO WAY is someone removing all my hard work "

I loved that!!!

um, I have seen this exact same listing before, probably like 2 years ago. Seriously, EXACTLY the same, except for the due date. Seems to me like its some fetishist/uber pro circ person or just someone who wants money.
