Wow that is great work. Make sure to pass along the care info so that someone doesn't tell her she must "retract and clean". Hopefully she might change a mind and so on, like pay it forward.

It is soooo good to see this! So often, we (the general we) try and fail to persuade our friends and relatives to leave their sons intact, so we end up thinking that our efforts are for naught. Posts like yours help us to see that our work IS effective, and give us spiritual food to continue the fight.
Thanks!

I have told her that no one should try to retract him at all and to make sure the doctors know as well.

That is great! My friend just had a boy a few days ago, too, and they are leaving him intact! When I held the little guy in the hospital I was just so happy for him that he was going to leave unharmed. He was so peaceful and happy and safe.

Blessed mama of four

I so agree...

I am having a boy in Jul/Aug and thanks to this board and all the info, and the info I passed to my husband, he will be a complete little man

OH WOW!! you did well protecting that little boy, you did well.

I also have a lot of friends (I am 18 and my friend's are teenagers) and I am educating them about breastfeeding past one and vaccines and circumsion (sorry dont know how to spell it).I have so far changed alot of their views.So yay!

I have one friend who would have gotten her son's foreskin removed (when she does get pregnant), as she didnt know there was anything bad about it, but I showed her so much info against it she said she is in no way EVER getting it done if she has a boy baby, and her family is wild!! hahaha
