Definition of the procedure/test
meaning "to cut around") is the surgical removal of the foreskin
(prepuce) from the human penis. In a typical procedure, the foreskin
is opened and then separated from the glans after inspection. The circumcision
device (if used) is placed, and then the foreskin is removed. Topical or
locally injected anesthesia may be used to reduce pain and physiologic stress."
This topic has been on my heart and mind in the last few
days…I figured I would roll with it. I
am going to write about one of the “touchy” subjects today. And no, I am not talking about "the cut" of an episiotomy today...
One of the topics we cover (albeit briefly) in our Bradley Method® class series is circumcision. Today’s post will be short and sweet as I intend
it to be more for you to think about and discuss with your partner, than for me
to offer specific information or an opinion.
