Instructions for
Non-Circumcision Notification Form


NOTE: Links with a right-facing blue arrow will take you off this site.

 

To ensure that your child is not circumcised at the hospital or birthing facility,
take the following precautions:

1.   Print out, complete, sign and date the Non-Circumcision Notification Form. Make a copy for your records. Submit the original to the hospital staff upon admission. If any circumcision consent form is subsequently signed, this will create a legal conflict that will likely cause the hospital to refrain from circumcising your child. If the hospital does circumcise your child "by mistake," the Notification Form will be an important document for you should you decide to take legal action against the hospital or its employees.

2.   When signing papers at the hospital, read them carefully to make sure you’re not signing anything that could be construed as granting permission for circumcision.

3.   As an added measure of safety, affix a piece of paper to the baby’s crib that reads: "NO CIRCUMCISION" or "CIRCUMCISION FORBIDDEN."  Believe it or not, babies have still been circumcised even after parents have indicated their non-circumcision wishes both verbally and in writing.

4.   Prior to hospital admission, purchase the "No Circumcision" T-shirt for your child (see image below). It comes in two sizes: Small (newborn to16 pounds: for his post-partum stay in the hospital), and Large (27-32 pounds: to protect him from circumcision or forcible retraction during doctor visits).

Prepaid price: $4.50 each; two for $7.00. From: NOCIRC, PO Box 2512, San Anselmo, CA 94979.

5.   As a final step toward the protection of your child and the children of others, remember that it is technically illegal in most states for medical facilities and personnel to solicit for unnecessary surgery. Offering or giving new parents a Circumcision Consent Form when they have not requested one constitutes solicitation. If this happens to you, you may have a legal right to bring action against the hospital.  For details, check our Know Your Rights section.
