Re: Do you ever feel judged regarding not circumcising?

Such an interesting (amd disheartening) realization.
We had a family come in about a year ago from another country that did not regularly circ but they wanted it for their son. We educated, got a translator and tried to convince them NOT to circ (the doctor was the one that was heading up this "intervention" for the child). We wanted to make sure they understood that it is FOREVER, unneccesary and cannot be undone. The doctor did NOT want to circumsize that baby but ultimately the family insisted. What a bunch of sad nurses and docs that day.
I cannot imagine what it must be like in other parts of the country- perhaps that is why there is so much medical community bashing that occurs on here.
Ok, back to our regularly scheduled programming...
