What is Circumcision? How many newborn males get circumcised? What are the risks? What are the benefits? 

Well, Dr. Ellen joins us on our podcast to discuss just these questions! 

Here is a brief synopsis of our chat. 

What is Circumcision? 

Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin on a penis.  The foreskin is the skin that covers the glans of the penis. 

How many boys are circumcised? 

This has changed over the years.  In the 1970s approximately 50% of men were circumcised.  It has dropped to approximately 25-30% of infant males now getting circumcised.

2. Will the number of vaccines overwhelm my baby's immune system? Can I space them out?

This is a great question.  Vaccines have been engineered to...
