If you are expecting a boy to come, you should consider circumcision after giving birth but before you return home. Although this is not a mandatory medical procedure, it should be considered.
Remember, you don't want to delay this decision for too long as it usually takes place in the first few days after delivery. The more information you have about circumcision surgery the better prepared you will be to make the best decisions for you and you're newborn.

Circumcision is a medical procedure used to remove the layer of skin covering the genitals of boys. This layer of skin is called the foreskin and covers the top of the genitals and opens into the urethra.
This procedure is performed by pediatric surgeons, pediatric urologists, and obstetricians. If you want to postpone this procedure immediately after giving birth, you can do it whenever your child is older and has a pediatric urologist.
Although circumcision is usually done before the third day of life, it can be done much later in life. You shouldn't feel compelled to do this procedure for your new son.
This is personal, and in most religious cases, a decision you should agree to only when you are comfortable. Normal circumcision in newborns only takes about twenty minutes from start to finish.
Your newborn baby will be taken to a sterile operating room, where he will be placed on a sterile table to avoid unnecessary movements. Your doctor can give your baby something to help prevent pain.
