21 weeks! I will not be accepting any vaccinations, flu nor dTap, I refuse weight checks, and I will refuse gestational diabetes testing. I am seeing a regular OB until it’s time to deliver with my midwife so I suspect these things will come up. I also will refuse cervical checks down the road. Did you know you can refuse anything you aren’t comfortable with or don’t agree with?
Your body, your baby, your choice; unless you are unconscious then consent is implied. Also while I am in the game of losing followers and pissing people off, these two perfect guys will not be circumcised. Circumcision = mutilation. Ok I think I can get off my soapbox for now. Open for questions ✌🏼. #pregnancy#bumpupdate#intactivist#intactamerica#yourwholebaby#twins#twinboys#twinsforthewin
Good information to know. I just had the doctor try to retract my son and then I cried on my drive home. Now I feel like writing a strongly worded letter. For future reference, dont retract a baby’s foreskin. Not even a little #intactamerica#circumcisionhurts#anticircumcision i am shocked at the amount of crap I got from people who thought I should mutilate my sons body the day he’s born but I think people who circumcise their kids are fucked up #idowhatiwant#getyourownbaby
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.

Casual reminder that baby boys deserve the same bodily autonomy and integrity at birth that baby girls have ☺️ circumcision rates are declining more and more every year! There’s no need for RIC. Look up the facts and statistics. There’s a reason the majority of insurances no longer cover it, and reasons why it’s listed as an aesthetic surgery! #rufflingfeathers#circumcision#intactamerica#intactivist
Yep. The poor little boys who have had to or will suffer through this between day 1 and day 10 of life usually. No, the "pain medication" you think they are getting doesnt work for all layers that get ripped and cut... And usually they cut before any of them even kick in. Will you be with/were you with your brand new baby when they hurt him? Probably not. Will/did you send him away so you dont have to deal with it? Probably... Poor nurses will still tell you he took it like a champ ...meanwhile he suffers so so much.
