This is a very graphic video involving circumcision of a baby boy. The Birthing Site does not endorse circumcision, we feel it's necessary for parents to make an informed decision about whether this procedure is necessary for their baby.

I have two beautiful daughters one born in the hospital and my other daughter was born at home in the water. I became a birth activist after my homebirth. Women should be free to choose where and with whom they give birth.
I felt the same way! So much so I thought about not posting this!! Then I reminded myself: this site's focus is on education, enabling parents to make informed decisions for themselves and their families. Sad as this video is (no baby should scream from pain like that) parents are still choosing to circumcise baby boys and maybe watching this and knowing it involves removing HALF of the baby's penis skin may change some minds.
Oh my god, that is terrible. I could not watch the whole thing. As soon as I heard that little boy's screams and saw them cutting, AHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I am going to have nightmares. So glad that we did not do that to our little guy.
