Mohels will do a circumcision in your home- recommended above any other option if you are going to opt for this surgical procedure. The mohel is specially trained and a specialist in circumcisions and the rituals surrounding the procedure. Many mohelim are doctors or rabbis (some are both) or cantors. However, all are required to receive appropriate training both from the religious and medical fields.
The American Academy of Pediatrics and World Health Organization have issued statements that say there is no medical reason for routine infant circumcision. Please take the time to inform yourself about this issue before making a decision.
There are videos and DVDs in the Rising Moon lending library that can be borrowed to help you make an informed choice. Please inform your midwife if you are considering this surgical procedure for your baby.

Become educated to make an informed choice about vaccinations. Not all children are at the same risk for all illnesses. Research and making a decision you are comfortable with is most important. It is helpful to have your own copy of “The Vaccine Guide” on hand for reference.
