A Vital Tissue Issue

with Andrea Boyd
Monday, 27 May 2024 at 19h UK time
In a number of Western countries, especially the United States, an antiquated practice referred to as “circumcision” is still performed on a varying percentage of baby boys.

This removal of healthy tissue affects the child, the parents, the future sexual partners, and society at large.

In this presentation US based birth and postpartum doula Andrea Boyd will discuss some history of circumcision, the surgical procedure and why and how it is performed, the main reasons parents give for agreeing to it and the implications on the child’s health and sexuality.

We will learn what questions parents can ask themselves and where to find educational material, what care providers responsibilities are and where the connectivity to violence and trauma lies.

From a physical, spiritual, physiological, emotional standpoint, each individual’s birthright is to be honoured as a sacred creature who deserves love, protection, bodily autonomy, and to remain intact and unscathed. - "First, do no harm.”- Hippocratic oath
