Re: Do you ever feel judged regarding not circumcising?

After my c-sec (I was under a general) the ped was checking over DS2, with DH right there. The Ped asked about circ'ing, DH said "No. We don't circ our boys." The Ped said "Good! I hate doing them. Totally unnecessary."
Umm... Whoa. Just not the reaction I was expecting - but I'm oh-so-glad to hear it!

Are Drs still recommending them in the US?

Maybe this is just one more body part that magically changes when you cross the border? We all know that, obviouly, a woman's uterus magically changes while crossing the border so that VBACs are terribly, horribly dangerous down there while being recommended up here!

(sorry. mini rant. drives me BONKERS.)

Love to hear that!

Even if I had been wanting to get our boys done, the few hundred $$ it costs now would have made us reconsider - at the time when the first 2 boys were born, there's no way we could have paid that for something unnecessary.
FTR, obviously if something is medically happening and a circ is medically necessary, then it would be covered and not something to pay OOP.
