Re: DCFS called on Mom who refuses to allow her son to be retracted

omg that is horrible. it is actually scary how uneducated (and unwilling to be educated) many medical professionals are. my mom has been a post partum nurse for 25 years. i feel like she should be something of an expert on this subject, since she deals with babies everyday. yet, we have had EPIC battles over the last 2 years since my son was born about whether or not his foreskin should be retracted. it is mind-boggling to me that she refuses to believe any suggestion i make that this is ACTUAL medical research to NOT TOUCH THE FORESKIN, especially when she admits that her experience with uncircumcised penises is fairly limited. i have simply had to tell her that i don't care if she believes me, but if she ever dares to retract my son's foreskin, she will NOT be watching him anymore. it's double scary because, if something were to happen and we needed an er, we would have to go to the hosptial she works at, where they obviously don't keep themselves up to date. and she's confused as to why i refuse to deliver my baby there....?

ugh this poor family, so so frustrating.

That is such a frustrating story. Stupid, ignorant nurse.

Re: DCFS called on Mom who refuses to allow her son to be retracted

Despite living in an area with a large percentage of intact boys, I have experienced care providers that have no clue what they are talking about. Once a nurse started trying to argue with me about that intact boys commonly get infections and that is *why* I should have circ'd my son. Yeah, I'm usually pretty laid back but that just brought out the mama bear in me.

This story is scary. I am a former pediatric nurse and also a mama of 4 intact boys. I just don't even know what to say!

Re: DCFS called on Mom who refuses to allow her son to be retracted

My boys are circ'd (no flames please) but stuff like this is what scares me to take them to the Dr's at all! Last time we went to a ped the staff about passed out when we said we delayed vax and ds (at 10 months) had only had his newbie shots). The ped came in and said that no one else in their practice did that so the staff wasn't aware it could be done! The ped said he would *allow* us to do that but he wanted to know why and he argued with us and sent us home with a book. Needless to say we are taking the kids to a new dr today and praying it will be a good visit. I am shocked and even angry that this happened. It is horrible way that nurse acted and obvious that she was angry over being told she was wrong and not interested in becoming informed at all. Dr's and nurses want us to trust them with our children's care but then they do crap like this and wonder why we get upset and don't trust them?

Experiences like this are what make me really leery of the medical world. I wish there were more good, understanding, wanting-to-listen doctors....

that poor family.
