So last night after I was done with the Childbirth Collective (doula group that teaches about natural childbirth) I started walking to the coffee shop with my friends/doulas. There was this brand new doula with us, and about halfway there, she turns to me and says, "Are you the nocirc doula"? I almost said yes, and then I though maybe the organization has a doula, and then I thought that "I" should be there doula...basically overthinking it. My friends started laughing as I was saying yes and no at the same time. They said "YES, she is the nocirc doula"! She told me that three years ago she was pregnant with her son, and I was the only doula she called. (She didn't end up having a doula because of her husband) I told her about my stance and all about circumcision and that it was wrong. She had never even thought about it, but her husband was very opposed to not having it done. She worked on him about it for the rest of the pregnancy, showing him his scar and talking about all of the nerve endings that would be gone forever. Anyway, THEY LEFT THEIR SON INTACT!!! And I never even knew until last night!
