Circumcision

Discuss circumcision with your health care provider while you are pregnant. There are many different perspectives, such as religious beliefs, family tradition, the timing and who performs it.  Circumcisions can be performed by physicians, midwives and mohels.

American Academy of Pediatrics statement:  ”After a comprehensive review of the scientific evidence, the American Academy of Pediatrics found the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks, but the benefits are not great enough to recommend universal newborn circumcision. The final decision should still be left to parents to make in the context of their religious, ethical and cultural beliefs.”
