As a student midwife one of the many things I’ve learned about is the religious practice of circumcision. The more I learned about it the more questions arose – like where did this begin? Why do we do it? Is it necessary? I was intrigued and began my own research while also learning about it in school.
These earrings were designed with the intent to bring awareness to the practice of circumcision in hopes to give more understanding and knowledge about our decision to perform it. Below is a link to a video made by Kaleem Joy, a certified professional and licensed midwife, as well as a certified pediatric massage therapist. In this video she discusses circumcision and why it’s important to be informed regarding this topic.
