I like her, she's nice...says all the right things but...when we went over the part about circ. she just glossed over it , and said "I'm not gonna talk about it, it's just a decision you guys will be faced with, so be prepared. " YOU should prepare, educate couples on that! No circ'ing is part of natural childbirth! Or is it ook to be all gung-ho about no-drugs and then cut the penis of a NATURALLY beautiful baby. I am livid. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I'd write the Bradley folks a note. I know several instructors and they all address the issue of circumcision throughout the course. I believe that the 'Bradley people' strongly encourage their instructors to include this. I know that two of the women I know 'slip it in' with the regular material because they know certain couples would skip a class if it were clearly labeled "Circumcision--view video and discuss value of wholeness." At the very least they should have a guest speaker (if, for example, they cut their children and can't present the issue well). Our Bradley instructor was LLL but she still had a guest speaker CLC so that people knew it wasn't just her 'opinion'!<br>
Good Luck!
