  • yes, we had it written in our birth plan, but my son was in nicu and I hope they respected what we wrote down. I never asked after because I was too concerned with other things that were at the moment. My second was a homebirth and we did not do it either... both boys were left intact... it was not necessary.

  • I didnt do the vitamin K because we birthed at home. So it wasnt even an option.

  • I had Maddox at a birth center and refused the Vitamin K shot. My midwives and I discussed it before hand and I also wrote it into my birth plan.

  • We got it because we were having him circumcised in the first few days. If we had a girl we were going to decline.
