I talk about all sorts of topics. Blog posts are fun to write, and provide an awesome place for me to refer clients back to. I use blogs as a cathartic exercise to process my opinion, and thoughts. But here’s one thought I can’t have a voice on.
This one topic gets people riled up like no other. The truth of the matter is that there are very polarizing positions on this topic. Lots of people have VERY strong thoughts on circumcision. Let me take the chance to lay out my thoughts.
I’m a doula. The largest aspect of my job description is “provide nonjudgmental support to parents”. We are all humans with opinions, and positions, thoughts, and ideas. I have an opinion about the way things are done in my own home, and in my business.
My personal opinion of circumcision is that you make the choice that best fits your family. No one should bully you into making a choice that you are not comfortable with. Find a doula who supports you. That doesn’t mean she makes the same choices as you do. What it does mean that she will stand by your side while you make the best choices for your family.
