If you’re arranging your son’s circumcision you’re probably wondering where it should be carried out. Should you take your baby to the hospital? Or should you opt for a holistic method? Of course, every parent wants to be sure that their baby experiences minimal pain, but there are some other considerations to keep in mind too when making a final decision. Here, we take a closer look at some of the differences between a hospital and a holistic circumcision so that you can make a well-informed choice that’s right for you and your precious baby.
What Can I Expect If I Take My Baby To A Hospital?
Some parents think that a hospital procedure must be safer and better for their baby, however this may not necessarily be the case. Many parents are unaware of how the procedure is carried out in the hospital setting. For example, they may not know that they will generally not be present when the procedure takes place, or that it could take up to thirty minutes. Although the hospital is a safe and sterile environment, it can also be very clinical and cold – not necessarily something that parents would want for their baby.
What Can I Expect From A Holistic Circumcision?
The holistic circumcision experience is very different from one carried out in a hospital, both for your baby and for you as parents. For a start, the length of the procedure is considerably shorter, taking just 15 to 30 second from start to finish. You’ll also be welcomed to be present at all times, and you can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your baby is being held by loving and warm hands throughout. Your baby will be injected with drugs in the hospital, but there are no injections or drugs necessary during the holistic procedure – if you’re worried about your son experiencing pain, a topical anesthetic can be applied if you prefer. Most importantly, the whole occasion is meaningful and spiritual without any of the clinical coldness that you would experience in the impersonal hospital environment.
