I found a pediatrician in our area who was taking new patients and who didn't act as if they had never heard of a homebirth!! I spoke with the receptionist at Dr.Hussein Al-Shammaa's office (what a name right) and she said they worked with mom's who had homebirths and new the process. So I am supposed to call shortly after delivery and they will schedule us to come in when baby is 3 days old (if its a boy)! We will have an apt to go to the hospital nursery first to have baby administered the Vitamin K shot, and then we will go to the pediatrician office to have the circumcision done! We had planned to skip the Vitamin K shot and schedule the circumcision after day 8. But the Dr doesn't do them that late, and only does them IF the Vitamin K shot is given! So atleast I have figured that all out!! YEAY!!
I am not interested in information on circumcision itself? I dont want to hear how horrible a mother I am, etc etc etc. I am just curious who does circumcision?? With my boys I had hospital births. They were given the vitamin K shot and circumcised immediately! With this baby I am not sure of the sex. But my midwife said I need to call and set up the circumcision incase this is a boy, and then just cancel if its not. And that way I can find out their policy on when they will do it etc. But who do I call? Do I call my family Dr? Or is there someone else?? Never had to go about it this way so I haven't a clue!
