I decided not to because DH didn't want it done. My mom said don't do it. I thought of it and just didn't do it. I'm glad I didn't.

a lot of women don't and I don't hold them accountable. it's the dumb ass doctors who just want more money. a lot of women say they researched it but most of the time I ddon't think they do much because there are expectations from doctors. it sucks.

I agree! I just saw a quote of a doc saying that they might get 1,500 during a woman's pregnancy, where as to circumsice is a quick procedure and is 500 a pop.
Thank gosh my doc is "let me give you all the facts" kind of doctor.

that's awesome.I've met more women who regret circumcision than women who regret leaving baby intact. actually I've never met a mom who regret leaving their sonas he was born. I feel so sad for women who have had it done then learned better after the fact. my mom is a good example. had my brother cut, which he confronted her about and now she feels terrible. that was the 90 when everyone was doing it because most doctors stood by it. at least docs are starting to oppose it more and more now though.



we had to switch doctors when she started getting on my case about my son.

When we told my parents we weren't going to so Braden's she told me my brother or my dad weren't. Lol I had NO idea.
When I asked brandon what he thought he was like uh why wouldn't we, and he did his own research and was like there is no way that's being done to our son. I don't know how after seeing how they do it people still choose that

So i have decided not too. One of the biggest reasons is i started to watch a video of it being done and couldnt even get half way through it. If i cant even bear to see it my son will not go through it. Ive decided to offer to pay for it in the future when he is older if he decides to but until then hes keeping every part of him.

If you DO then he "won't be the same" right now it's like 30% circ and 70% in circed
