Okay, I try not to share stuff like this too often because I’m not someone who handles discomfort well, and although it’s an extremely important topic, it is also extremely uncomfortable and taboo in this country. However, I have been following this mamas podcast for a while now and after listening to the latest one I HAD to share. If you or anyone you know is expecting a baby boy, definitely go and give this a listen!
For the month of October, we are teaming up with the @attachmentparentingpodcast to help raise funds for our mission! For every new Patreon member that pledges support to APP, they will be donating 50% of the proceeds to Your Whole Baby.

"There's nothing Christian about circumcision. Christians throughout the world and history have rejected circumcision. In fact, the modern procedure isn't even the original Jewish one." -Little Images article "Circumcision is Unchristian"

Boys are born perfect too. •
Common reasons some have their newborn circumsized: °he should look like his father °its cleaner °other boys will make fun of him °potential mate won't find it appealing °its easier to care for when they're old men
Some reasons one should NOT circumcise: °body autonomy °117 baby boys die each year from complications during or after their foreskin removal procedures °its purely cosmetic °boys are born perfect too °the trauma permanently changes the brain on a molecular level °it's desensitizes the glans (or head of the penis) °easier to care for °chances of crooked or botched removal causing too little skin in some, leaving "too much" on others •
Care of the newborn circumcised penis: Vaseline globs, gauze, clamp depending on method used, making sure feces stays out of an open w o u n d.
