Benefits of Co-Sleeping  ~ A  great article by Dr. Sears on co-sleeping.  Co-sleeping helps parents survive the newborn stage mentally intact.

Circumcision  ~ If you are sure that you want to circumcise your baby, we can give you contact info for area doctors who will perform the procedure on homebirth babies.  But please do your research first, and make sure you know why you want your baby circumcised.  It is not a complication free or necessary procedure as it is often promoted.
