How to Choose if a Mohel is Right for You
When parents deliberate over whom to choose for their son’s circumcision, I encourage them to do the following three things.
Do Your Research
- Speak to the Mohel, speak to the pediatrician, and speak to your midwife. Make sure that you are informed.
- Allow the spirituality of this precious moment penetrate your lives. Find the time to connect and listen to the message that God is giving to you.
Speak To Your Partner
- Discuss your issues with your spouse and listen to them. Your son’s circumcision is a major part of your son’s life, and it’s only right that the decision come through the earnestness of you together as a couple.
Listen To Your Own Voice
- If you have hesitations with using a Mohel/pediatrician, call them up, have a chat with them, and see if you can become comfortable with them. If you cannot then don’t use them. Your son’s circumcision is a big step and you should feel good about it.
