I would think that of the baby is being taken from the hospital by the adoptive parents then i would say it would be up to them.

Adoptive parents. Not sure why the BM would make that choice

I believe adoption varies by state. Some states have the birth parents give them up immediately and some states allow the birth mom to bond with the baby until she leaves the hospital. In which case if the birth mom still had "custody" over the child, I imagine that she could have him circumcised. But once the baby is in the adoptive parents care, then it is their decision to do it if it is not already done. Although I can't understand why a birth mom would care to do it when she won't be taking care of the babe in the first place.

I could be completely wrong about all this so don't quote me on it.

Quoting mnivis01:

Adoptive parents.

What if the birth mother doesn't want to circ but the adoptive parents want too. Can she say no?

I believe so, yes. She made the choice to place the child with them. They will be the child's parents. And usually if the adoptive parents are at the hospital, that's when they sign the papers.

This is a tricky situation though.. since most states the biological mother has so many weeks to change their mind..

The birth mother has to sign a release to allow the prospective adoptive parents to do it because she is the  baby's legal parent. This is what I did. 

If the birth mother didn't want it done, she could make it a condition of the adoption, but even so, once the adoption is finalized the adoptive parents could then have it done because then the birth mother is legally a stranger.
