Well, it was more our attending neonatologist than me. But I helped!
Together we convinced a mom to keep her son whole!

Sure. Though I'm a terrible story teller.

This mom had a term baby in the NICU. Her 4th, 3rd boy. As we were preparing to transfer baby back to the nursery, our neonatologist came to update mom about the transfer. She asked if she wanted baby circ'ed (I know we shouldn't be asking but she has different motives) Mom said yes. So the Neo says she has to talk to the pediatrician who will be doing the procedure. She then asked why she was considering it. We find out this woman's husband and two older sons are intact! She said "I was young and didn't know". She said now she knew that circ was cleaner and it made the penis bigger!!!
So the doctor says those are all myths. She tells us that her older sons had never had any problems being intact.
So we went back and forth for about 15 minutes answering all her concerns.
The best part was when the Neo said that the decision should be left to the owner of the penis! In the end, mom agreed!

It was great! I wish this particular doctor would discuss this issue with more of our parents.
