Description:
The recent study of national average of circumcised new born boys shows a drop to 33% (from around 50%) overall. I was wondering how home birthed babies (who were not involved in the study, as it was a national hospital exit questioner) are faring.

If you had a HOME BIRTH, and birthed a little boy...please check which one applies to you:

  • I had my son's penis circumcised primarily for religious reasons

    0%
  • I left my son's penis intact -as he was born for religious reasons

    0%
  • I had my son's penis circumcised because we belive it to be healthier that way

    18%
  • I left my son's penis intact -as he was born because I believe it to be healthier that way

    68%
  • Other

    13%

    Remember, "healthier" can mean physically and mentally!

    I chose healthier, but truthfully he has a right to make that choice himself, even if the laws allow others to take that choice away from his peers

    I voted even though I didn't have a home birth. I did have an out of hospital birth, though. My son was born at a free-standing birth center and we left him intact because I believe it is healthier.

    I've had 2 sons and they are both intact. Not because its a "fad" or the "in" thing. I did it because I couldn't see cutting them without a medical reason. Its not my body and I believe its a cosmetic surgery that should be done with the permission of the owner! Besides, my DH is circ'd and he is the one that suggested that we DON'T cut our sons! (My hero!)
