Male circumcision is a religious and cultural decision that has become increasingly medicalized. Many families make decisions about circumcision based on culture and family without true informed consent. There is a need for unbiased information, prior to delivery, about circumcision, so that families may make an informed decision that is right for them. A one page document was created as an addition to the clinic's pregnancy guide with information on risks and benefits of circumcision, complications associated with the uncircumcised penis, cultural significance, and care of the uncircumcised penis.
